Deacon Stephen Shortes and his wife Leslyn are back home at Our Saviour. Deacon Stephen began on October 2 as our deacon. The Holy Scriptures and ancient Christian writers make it clear that from the apostles’ time, there have been different ministries within the Church. There are three distinct orders of ordained ministers that
have been characteristic of Christ’s holy catholic Church.

The ministry of a deacon is to represent Christ and his Church, particularly as a servant of those in need and to assist bishops and priests in the proclamation of the Gospel and the administration of the sacraments. Please welcome them to Our Saviour!
