Baptising Babies and Clearing Gutters: A Fresh Appraisal of the Permanent Diaconate

by Stringer Bridie

€8.75

       

As the Church marks the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council, it is an opportune time to take stock of the deacon's ministry. This book explores the theological impact of the restoration of the deacon's ministry as a permanent Holy Order - heralded in 1964 in the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church - in a way which is readily understood by the "nonspecialist".

It offers questions for personal reflection and group discussions in parishes. This interactive element will be helpful for those discerning whether they might have a call to the permanent diaconate, and also for parish groups supporting aspirant deacons in formation. It addresses the current dearth of adult formation resources on the deacon's ministry and plots a trajectory for the way ahead.

"Permanent Diaconate, gifted to the church through the 2nd Vatican Council, although almost 50 years old, is still in its infancy. Bridie Stringer's research is a substantial contribution to our reflections on the nature of diaconate, and its practice and how it could develop for the benefit of Christ's Church. I thoroughly recommend it to you."


Rt Rev Christopher Budd, Bishop of Plymouth

"I am very happy to commend Dr Stringer's book. She has done extensive research into the diaconate and its place in the life of the Church in this country and draws on extensive and perceptive pastoral experience. This will be an important guide for laypeople, deacons, priests and bishops for many years to come."


Fr Ashley Beck, Dean of Studies,

Diaconate Formation Programme for southern England and Wales
