Deacon: Called to Word and Service

There’s a familiar new face around St. Mark’s Lutheran Church these days. Kathy Richardson (at left) officially became a member of St. Mark’s this month. However, for many, she has been a recognizable face around the church for many years. Although she is officially a "new member," many of you have met her and worked with her in congregation, synod, and conference events.

Kathy brings more than her smiling face, helping hands, and voice of praise to our congregation. She is also a consecrated synod deacon. A synod deacon is a layperson who has completed two years of academic, practical, and spiritual training in a synod-sponsored adult education program called "Diakonia" and has been recommended for consecration (official recognition) by his or her pastor and the synod bishop.

As a synod deacon, she volunteers her time to work along side me as a pastoral assistant. Like all members, she gives freely of her time and talents to further the ministries of this congregation. While pastors are called to the ministry of Word and sacrament, deacons are called to the ministry of Word and service.
