National Deacons’ School 2015

A chatter of deacons or is it a bother of deacons?  Who knows the collective word for 26 vocational deacons from Timaru to Cambridge, including eight from the Wellington diocese.  Gathered in one place to share our stories and discover the remarkable parallels to Mother Suzanne Aubert’s story from the Home of Compassion in Island Bay.  A story of reaching out to those in need – through invitation, compassion, patience, objection, persistence, and grace – which in time transformed communities and the culture of time.
