Nov 3, 2022

As Director for Decaonal Formation, Deacon John Ray, will model this ministry in service to the Bishop, the Diocese, and the Community of Deacons. He will work closely with the Archdeacons in the formation of new deacons for the Diocese of Atlanta.

John will maintain and update the curriculum for diaconal formation by preparing an annual budget for the formation process, providing course instruction when necessary, serving as a liaison for course instructors by coordinating all logistics, and making necessary arrangements for the classes to be taught.

John will also coordinate formation functions and activities with seminaries and other dioceses, when appropriate.
