Porvoo Communion Consultation on the Diakonia

the latest events

Added on 30/01/2013

The Church of Ireland is to host a Porvoo Communion Consultation on the Diakonia in the Church of Ireland Theological Institute in Dublin 15–18 April 2013. This will be the third Porvoo Consultation held to address some aspect of the area of vocation and will have the theme “Diakonia as a proclamation of the Gospel”. The Consultation will be co– chaired by the Most Revd, Michael Jackson, Archbishop of Dublin.

The Scandinavian and Baltic Lutheran Churches of the Porvoo Communion have a permanent diaconate, whereas most of the Anglican member Churches of Porvoo do not. The nature and scope Diakonia has been a source of some perplexity within the Communion and an area of persistent misunderstanding. 

The Church of Ireland will assist also in resourcing the Consultation which will have participants from Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Estonia, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Spain and Portugal.
