Check it out: FAQ about deacons

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 02/05/13

Look at my tab bar.  Are you looking?  Right under the black-and-white church image with the words “The Deacon’s Bench”?  I’ve added a new tab: “FAQ ABOUT DEACONS.” 

It’s pulled from the USCCB website, and offers some basic information about who deacons are and what they do.  I thought it might be helpful for anyone who might be dropping by—the curious, the inquirers, even deacons and their families.  (Hey, you never know…)

I’ve had the tab up for a few weeks but only got it to work (thank you, Dan!) today.
