As the Prayer Book states, Deacons should also serve at the Lord’s Table, preparing and placing on it the offerings of bread and wine. In some places, it is customary to elevate the consecrated sacrament at the doxology to the eucharistic prayer and at The Gifts of God for the People of God. Where this is the custom, the deacon, as minister of the chalice, elevates the chalice and the celebrant elevates the consecrated bread. Morehouse Publishing, Harrisburg, PA. 1992.

ORMONDE PLATER is a deacon in the Episcopal Church who has been active for many years in the renewal of the diaconate. The former president of the North American Association for the Diaconate, he served as deacon at St. Anna's Parish in New Orleans, Louisiana for over two decades.

A deacon is a member of the diaconate, an office in Christian churches that is generally associated with service of some kind, but which varies among theological and denominational traditions. Major Christian churches, such as the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Anglican church, view the diaconate as part of the clerical state. The title is also used for the president, chairperson, or head of a trades guild in Scotland; and likewise to two officers of a Masonic lodge.

This book is a basic, essential text for discernment committees and commissions on ministry, and a comprehensive look at a vital ministry in the church today. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.

As a Postulant for Holy Orders, this book tells me everything I need to know about where to stand, how to read the Gospel, when the bishop takes off his/her mitre, and anything else I might need to know as a deacon within a service of worship. Plater does a wonderful job of walking the reader through each type of service within the Book of Common Prayer and the Prayer Book of the Anglican Church of Canada. He also provides additional resources for continuing education. This is a very readable, short book that will be a "go to" resource for me for years to come.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this powerful little volume. It made clear the need of and the functionality of Deacons in the worship life of every congregation. As a bishop I learned much that, unfortunately, I didn’t already know. I’m going to meet with my Deacons and Remedy many things in our relationships and worship leading capacities.

DEACONS IN THE LITURGY is written for Anglicans/Episcopalians in North America. As such, it will be of interest primarily to people of that communion. That does not stop it from having a wider appeal.

What this book does so well and so simply is explain the role of the diaconate in the various liturgies of the church. It tells what to do and when to do it providing an expansion to the rubrics of the BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER. It does not delve very much into history but does bring history up to justify certain acts. It explains the diaconal functions from an ancient and ecumenical context and then makes some provision for modern practice and usage. At all stages, the relevant passages from the BCP and other US and Canadian resources are referenced. It is a great guide for Anglican deacons but it has more potential as well.

Without explicitly saying so, the book describes many functions that have wider acceptance than just the Anglican Communion. Usually, these are evident by the lack of specific citations but they should be readily apparent to anyone with a passing knowledge of liturgy. This helps to differentiate denominational practice from wider practice and this book is simple enough, short enough and well written enough to be of use to others. This is especially true for United Methodists.

The United Methodist Church revived the permanent diaconate in 1996. Since the most recent BOOK OF WORSHIP was published in 92, it has no knowledge of deacons in liturgical functions. They are left to founder or make things up as they go along. The institutional United Methodist Church needs to address this problem but this book would be an excellent stopgap measure for UM deacons. This is especially true since UM liturgy is inherited from the Church of England.

A Must for Deacons!

This slight volume is extremely helpful for anyone planning involvement in the Episcopal liturgy as a Deacon. Not only does it outline the Deacon's role in every one of the primary Episcopal worship services but it also explains the reasons and history for the proper choreography at the altar.

Morehouse Press is one of the major publishers for things Episcopal, so it makes sense that Ormande Plater's book, 'Deacons in the Liturgy', would be published by them. This is a book designed to be used by those preparing to be (or who are) deacons in the Anglican/Episcopal tradition. It looks specifically at the role of deacons in the liturgical practice of the church - liturgy here defined as the order or worship; deacons do have roles (indeed, more important roles) outside of the worship-service-liturgical functions, but this book concentrates on the in-church-worship role.

This book grows out of a process begun in 1980 in response to the adoption of the new Book of Common Prayer version in the Episcopal church, and an expanding view of what deacons do. This is a specialised ministry, to be sure, but it is also an important ministry that serves as a bridge in some ways - 'by working together in liturgy, deacons and others symbolise the mission of the chruch in the world.'

After brief historical introduction, Plater covers many of the aspects of the diaconate - appropriate action and role in ministry of the Word and ministry of the sacrament; proper vestments and gestures, the relationship of deacons to other ministers, and the variations that take place in the different seasons, services, and occasions.

For being such a short text (a mere 70 pages of actual text), it is remarkably comprehensive in scope for the kinds of 'choreography' and activity of deacons in worship services. It is not intended to be a survey of theological questions of the role of the diaconate, nor an historical overview (though some of that does introduce the text) - for these topics, the reader will need to look elsewhere. However, for the task Plater set for himself - a full and useful description of the deacons' role, this text succeeds brilliantly.

This is the definitive book on the role of a deacon in the liturgy as prescribed in the Book of Common Prayer of the Episcopal Church. Not only does Deacon Plater outline the function of diaconal ministry in the liturgy, but also describes the significance of these functions historically, theologically, and symbolically. Should be required reading for all deacons, but priests and bishops as well.
A great improvement on the excellent first edition. Thorough explanation of what a deacon does for different styles and types of liturgies. A necessary tool for all interested in prayerful execution of the liturgy.
