  • Everyone discerning a call to be a deacon, wherever you are in that journey
  • Leaders, lay and ordained, of congregations supporting those discerning for the diaconate
  • Leaders, lay and ordained, of congregations hosting a diaconal internship
  • Leaders, lay and ordained, of congregations wishing to call a deacon
  • Current postulants for the diaconate 
  • Clergy seeking to identify potential deacons in their midst, and support seekers in the process

The day will begin with prayer and a welcome message from Bishop Goff. Throughout the day there will be workshops and plenary sessions about the ministry of the deacon, spotting a deacon in your midst, how one becomes a deacon in the Diocese of Virginia, and more.
