Michael Duffy (Trinity Cathedral) Accepted into The Seven
Michael Duffy, a member of Trinity Cathedral, has been accepted into The Seven, a church-wide program from the Association for Episcopal Deacons that gives young adults hands-on experience in diaconal ministry. The AED website explains that “participants serve where they live and engage in work and reflection that connects head, hands and heart to gain a deeper understanding of the concerns of the world. Online forums and other interactive communication tools will connect participants and their deacon mentors for group learning and conversation.” The program begins this month and ends in June.
Michael is the leader for Downtown Episcopal Outreach (DEO), and his work with DEO will dovetail with his work as one of The Seven. He will have support from Dean Craig Loya as Trinity Cathedral is his sponsoring institution, and Archdeacon Betsy Bennett will serve as his deacon mentor.
Please keep Michael in your prayers as he serves, learns, and discerns as one of The Seven.
