“God is calling us to a radical conversion and to a depth of trust in him which will allow God’s power to be released in our weakness, God’s wisdom to be revealed in our bewilderment, God’s truth to break through our disillusion” (God of Surprises, Gerard W. Hughes)
Our delegate Callum from South Africa tells us about his life and vocation.
December has long been associated with Christmas and the birth of a Baby in a manger, celebrated by Christians all around the world.
This year, December also stands out as the month of the launching of an original experience, that is to say the creation of a network which intends to connect deacons’ wives, worldwide. Indeed, on the proposal of the IDC Board, about ten wives, from the five continents, had been invited to take part to a virtual meeting. Not all were deacons’ wives but all were strongly committed to the diaconate somehow or other.
The focus of the content for the next four years, ecumenism and a planned network between the wives of deacons of the Catholic Church were the main topics of the board and delegates’ meeting of the International Diaconate Center (IDC) at its headquarters in Rottenburg from 22.-26. May 2022.
