Liturgical Role of the Deacon

https://episcopalmaine.org/resources/liturgical-duties-deacon/

Deacons have specific liturgical responsibilities in the worship of the Episcopal Church that are intended to reflect their role as servants of Christ. These duties include taking the Good News of God’s love to the world (proclaiming the Gospel), bringing the concerns of the world into the church (working with others on the prayers of the people), modeling servanthood (preparing the table) and sending the people of God out to serve the world (proclaiming the dismissal). Ideally, each of these liturgical duties is matched by real world and congregational ministries.
