Each December, AED publishes an online-only Directory of Deacons. The Directory lists all vocational deacons in the Episcopal Church and Anglican Church of Canada. While many deacons are members of AED, this Directory is not an AED membership listing.
Directory’s historical significance
One of AED’s first tasks as a national organization in The Episcopal Church (TEC) was to begin collecting this information many years ago. Historically, many dioceses reported only the ordination of transitional deacons to the national church’s Registrar of Ordinations. We recently confirmed that there are believed to be at least 200 ordained deacons unregistered. It is unknown how many dioceses neglect to register their deacons today, but we believe this directory to be the most accurate list of TEC deacons.
This information is laboriously updated from local diocesan contacts each year, and the task consumes a significant portion of AED’s budget. Thus, the Directory cannot track the following information:
