Diaconal Sunday - February 23

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) observes the last Sunday in February as Diaconal Sunday, to celebrate and lift up the witness expressed through service (diakonia). Through baptism, all Christians are called to share God's word and to serve our neighbours in Christ's name. It is also a day to recognize and give thanks to God for those who served in public ministry as diaconal ministers.
