Susan Haller, an ordained deacon, led the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Order of the Deacon by first showing a video entitled Connecting the Church and the World, which explained that the role of a deacon combines worship, service, compassion and justice. She also introduced 12 Wisconsin deacons (ordained, candidate, provisional) including one that was ordained as a deacon today, Laura Barnard Crosskey, and one commissioned for the work of a deacon, Ellen Maria Williams-Masson.
