This program provides the environment, structure and guidance necessary for the intellectual and personal formation of deacons who wish to serve the Orthodox Tewahedo Church. This two-year course is taught in Tigrinya or Amharic and does not require proficiency in Swedish or English.
The program includes Ge’ez and Zema training for sacramental and liturgical services. Those who participate in the program will acquire training and develop knowledge that will enable them to effectively carry out diaconal and liturgical service in the Church.
This online option is for those who are interested in the diaconal program but are unable to participate on campus. Students study online, part-time, with the approval and guidance of the rector of the seminary.
