Deacon Assignments

To request assignment of a Vocational Deacon, please submit this online Deacon Request Form by March 1st of each year. All requests will be evaluated by the archdeacons and other members of the bishop’s staff and will be filled as talent and geographical availability allows. Keep in mind that there is a limited pool of deacons from which to draw. If you have any questions, please contact the Archdeacon for Deployment, The Venerable Juan Sandoval.
