The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco offered a Deacons Retreat at Saint Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center in Dunlap, CA from October 28 – 30, 2022. The retreat welcomed Deacons and Diaconal Candidates, and some of their spouses, who spent over two days in fellowship while gaining valuable information and insight into the important role of the Diaconate and how this ministry is beneficial to our parishes and the overall Church. Under the direction of His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos, this retreat was designed to provide training to enhance the ministry of the Deacons, as well as provide a basis for Diaconal candidates studying at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, MA.
