In this section we post news about deacons and news of interest to deacons. We rely on deacons to provide us with much of this news, so if there is some news to report in your diocese in Australia or you are a deacon from elsewhere and think you may have some news worth sharing please send it to us for possible inclusion.
Send the material as a Word document and any photos as separate jpg files only.
We may have to edit your material or contact you for clarifications about it so please provide an email address (which we do not publish) that we can contact you on.
Items for Deacon News may be sent to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
