About the School for Deacons

The School for Deacons has been preparing Deacons for service in several dioceses since 1980. The program is tailored to meet the needs of working adults - meeting on 12 weekends a year, plus a weekend retreat.

We meet on the campus of the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, a founding member of the Graduate Theological Union. The location is ideal, with well-equipped classrooms, access to a world-class theological library, and inexpensive on campus housing for those who travel from a great distance.

Because of its setting, the school is able to attract an extraordinarily fine faculty and to create a powerful, deacon-led community of formation.
