Could you please tell me about deaconship? How is it different in our church from the Protestant and the Catholic Church?
What is the best way to attract deacons to attending hymns classes? For the past year I have been trying to attract seven particular deacons to attend, but to no avail... I have taken the Lord Jesus with me to visit them; have called them on the telephone...They would come once or twice.
What is the role of the rank of Deacon? Is this a full time position? Would they get paid a salary from the Church, similar to the priest (Abouna)? Are all deacons consecrated? If they are, what would make a difference between one who is paid and one who is not? This leads to another question that is a little of off tangent from the above. Nonetheless, if you only have one deacon, would they take on the roles of the archdeacon?? Also, can they ordain a deacon for the sole purpose of giving the blood, while neglecting his other duties?
