Please Support This Year’s Deacon Formation Collection

Did you know that, over the last four decades, dozens of Deacons of the Archdiocese of St. Louis have, in addition to their parish service, volunteered countless hours of selfless, lovingcare for those in our midst who are suffering and in need? Like those first seven ordained by theApostles, our Deacons are called to be ministers of charity and models of Christ-like compassionfor the sick, the poor, the imprisoned, and the dying, Deacons “wash the feet” of the faithfuleach day, seeing the face of Christ revealed in their ailing brothers and sisters. Deacons canbe found offering us comfort in every facet of daily life—nursing homes, hospitals, hospices,prisons, schools, airports, businesses, and more. Can you help our future deacons be Christ’shands and feet with your charitable donation to this year’s Deacon Formation Collection?Deacon formation in the Archdiocese relies heavily on the support of this year’s annual DeaconFormation Collection, held this coming October 2nd and 3rd.
