Registration opens for August 8-9 conference for catechists, diaconal vacations students

DETROIT, MI [MW Diocese Communications] — Registration is now open for the Diocese of the Midwest’s first Catechist and Diaconal Vocations Conference slated to be held August 8-9, 2014 at Saint Andrew’s House here.

Comprehensive program details, schedules and topics, and registration forms are available here.

The conference, which is being facilitated by His Grace, Bishop Alexander and Priest Elijah Mueller, Vocations Director, is especially designed for those who took the Late/Diaconal Vocations course before the present program was initiated and who need to move forward with petitioning for ordination, 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.

In addition to Bishop Alexander and Father Elijah, other instructors include Fathers Silvia Bunta and Steven Frase, Protodeacon Joseph Matusiak, Presvytera Rebecca Luft, Mark Roosein, and Anna Strelka.

Financial assistance is available upon request.  For further information contact Father Elijah at 312-714-9775 or
