What’s A Deacon?
Ten-year-old Beth asks her parents about the new deacon in the parish. They explain the diaconate and she is surprised. She quickly finds out that her classmates do not know what a deacon is or what a deacon does. She and her and her friend Carol ask their CCD teacher, who explains what a deacon is today and helps them to begin to think about the future. Beth’s story can encourage young people in the Church to dream about the diaconate. This lovely story is a starting point for vocational discussions with family and teachers. For lower elementary (reading level M/L).
