A Call to the Female Diaconate

Excerpt from A Call to the Female Diaconate: Issued by the Mary J. Drexel Home and Philadelphia Motherhouse of Deaconesses To the Reader: Of the many activities of the Church, none seems to be less known and more generally misunderstood than the Female Diaconate. Persons interested in this work for years, have told the writer that they know little or nothing about it. To the previous efforts of our Motherhouse, the present publication is added in the hope of giving the desired information and of creating a sincere desire among the young women of our church to consecrate themselves to the Lord in this cause. The call for deaconesses comes to our Motherhouse from congregations, institutions and fission Boards, but it will be impossible to enter new fields of labor before our Sisterhood has been materially increased. Our present work makes greater demands than in former years; we need more sisters for our hospitals and especially for our schools. In Germany not a few public school teachers and others of superior education are among the candidates for the Diaconate. Are the young women of our Church in this country less devoted to the Lord, less ready to consecrate their life and talents to His cause? We believe not, and trust future developments will justify this faith. When parents begin to realize the great opportunities for their daughters in the Diaconate, and pastors rejoice to see one or more of the young women they have been permitted to train for good work in their own congregation, enter the larger field of activity, the Sisterhood will rapidly increase and by its service in institutional and congregational activities, prove a ten-fold blessing to the Church. There are many devout and capable young women waiting for the call of the Lord to special service. Here is the call. May they respond promptly, for the King's business requires haste!
