Lisa has invited anyone living in the area to an afternoon of conversation with DOTAC and other diaconal ministry people on Thursday - a great way to connect, listen, get a sense of the 'big picture' of DOTAC responsibilities, and have your say about diaconal ministry.

DOTAC has membership from 12 associations in North America, South America and the Caribbean. It gives attention to ways to: 
* explore various perspectives on diaconal ministry
* make ecumenical and international links to diaconal groups
* network to share information of education and formation for diaconal ministry
* pursue common mission initiatives
* connect with others in ministries of service, justice and reconciliation.
