Registration is now closed.
Registration cost appears greater than last Triennial because it covers program fees, food and lodging this time, not just program fees.
Update: May 6, 2016
Significant financial support for participation has now come forth from several dioceses, a private grant, and the Fund for the Diaconate. Deacons (and deacons postulants and candidates) under the age of 45 have funds available from a private grant, deacons in Southern Ohio are being funded by their Bishop, Deacons in MA may receive $500 of support, and deacons from MN have opportunity for support from funds set aside by AED to enable local deacons to attend. Please contact your diocese or email Lori Mills-Curran for more information.

AED is aware that these costs are prohibitive for some deacons. Every effort has been made to keep costs down. Many dioceses offer clergy continuing education funds, for which deacons may apply. A few dioceses provide scholarships to Triennial; bishops often will provide scholarship funds upon request. Parishes may also be a source of funds. The Fund for the Diaconate provides some scholarship money, each year, for one deacon. AED has very limited scholarship funds, but may receive an enthusiastic response for contributions to our new Triennial Scholarship Fund. Please contact Lori Mills-Curran to inquire about scholarship assistance.
We look forward to seeing you!
