As recommended by the Holy Synod, each diocese shall have a Deacons School to serve all the Deacons in the diocese.
A general meeting was held on the 25th of April 2017 under the supervision of HG Bishop Raphael, the Secretary of the Holy Synod, and about 1,200 Deacons. The meeting discussed the school’s system and how the Holy Synod will supervise the Deaconship services. HG Bishop Daniel has directed a servant to attend this meeting representing His Grace and the Diocese of Sydney.
Accordingly, Saint Athanasius School of Hymnology & Liturgical Theology – Abu Sefein Church, under the supervision of Reverend Fr. Sharobim Sharobim, is establishing a new system to look after the Deaconship service across the Diocese of Sydney. A new online system is being implemented with which all the applicants can use the online services.
