Conference for catechists, diaconal vocations students, to be held in Detroit
August 8-9

DETROIT, MI [MW Diocese Communications] — A conference for catechists, Diaconal Vocations program students, and those interested in furthering their understanding of the Orthodox Christian faith will be sponsored by the Diocese of the Midwest at Saint Andrew’s House here August 8-9, 2014.

His Grace, Bishop Alexander and Priest Elijah Mueller, Director, will facilitate the program.

The conference is especially designed for those who took the Late/Diaconal Vocations course before the present Diocesan program was instituted and who need to move forward with petitioning, those interested in beginning the program but live in an area where no local group has been established, those who want to participate in a diaconal practicum, and those who have taken courses within the program who desire to meet for further education and fellowship.

The conference will feature a variety of classes, a practicum, opportunities to meet with Bishop Alexander and the Vocations Director, “hands on” assistance with petition paperwork, and presentations on lay catechesis. Presentations on Orthodox spirituality round out the program.

Costs and final schedule have yet to be established. Financial assistance will be available for those who request it.

Interested individuals are asked to call Father Elijah at 312-714-9775 or to send an e-mail to elijahnmueller@sbcglobal.net.

Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
