One of the most important objectives of this ministry is to provide resources to the Community on key aspects of diaconal responsibility.
The list below reflects the resources that are currently available, along with the author and contact information for follow up. Since this is a Community resource, we encourage all deacons to submit the work they have done in their ministry as an aid to others.
