‘Deacon Spouses Alone’ group gathers for prayer, activity
the Inland Register
(From the October 20, 2011 edition of the Inland Register)
Widows of deceased deacons, and widowed deacons, have begun meeting to offer support to one another and to be of service to the wider Church.
The group of widows and widowers, “Deacon Spouses Alone,” meets the third Saturday of each month at St. Peter Church in Spokane at 11 a.m. Gatherings begin with prayer, followed by a potluck.
Prayer includes reading the names of deacons and their wives, deceased deacons and wives, and those deacons and wives who are ill. Also included are this year’s deacon candidates.
Service activity has included providing an evening meal this month for the deacon formation class as well as writing class members letters of support.
