Congratulations to Daniel, who is now an ordained deacon. For Anglicans, as with Roman Catholics, deacons are clergy ministers, above lay persons in the ecclesiastical hierarchy. They assist the priest in the celebration of the eucharist, minister to the poor in the congregation and community, and get preaching rights. (And by the way, unlike Roman Catholic deacons, Anglican deacons — and priests — are allowed to marry.) Go Go Deacon Daniel!
