Nominate a Deacon for the Stephen Award
The Stephen Award for Diaconal Ministry
We are pleased to announce the creation of a new award specifically for permanent deacons. Our hope is to recognize the ministry of a permanent deacon (active or retired) for his service to the Church and his community. In addition to a certificate of recognition, featuring artwork by Brother Martin Erspamer, O.S.B., Abbey Press and Deacon Digest will make a $250 donation to that deacon’s parish or ministry site and his story will be featured in the May issue of Deacon Digest each year. We invite you to submit nominations for this award (the deadline for nominations is December 31, 2016). Our staff and advisers will select the winner of the award and we will announce our selection at the annual gathering of the National Association of Diaconate Directors.
