The Good News of Women and the Diaconate according to the Gospels

A 2-session bible study with Lizzie Berne DeGear, BCC, PhD

Wednesday, September 8th and 

Wednesday September 15th 

from 7:00-7:45pm EST

 

As Catholics, we know that Scripture can be a powerful tool in spiritual discernment.

So let it be with Discerning Deacons! In celebration of Saint Phoebe, NACC Chaplain and Bible scholar Lizzie Berne DeGear is offering three 45-minute zoom study sessions where we will delve into the original Greek and Hebrew of our Bible to tap into the scriptural roots of the diaconate. Together let’s discover the gospel heart of this ministry! No prior knowledge or study is required to participate, just curiosity and a desire for the wholeness of our Church.

Lizzie Berne DeGear, PhD is a chaplain, writer, Bible scholar and Catholic. Her biblical scholarship combines depth psychology and theology and has appeared in Religious Education and the UTS Quarterly Review, as well as in her book For She Has Heard. She is a contributing author to Guidepost’s Mornings with Jesus: Daily Encouragement for your Soul (2019 and 2020 editions), and is currently completing a book on the Gospel of Mark entitled Jesus Found in Translation. Certified by the National Association of Catholic Chaplains since 2002, she enjoyed teaching Bible Studies at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in NYC from 2002-2019, and moved to an online platform with this year’s Lenten Bible Study through Future Church:“ Women Rediscovered in the Bible”.
