Diaconical work

Jesus had compassion on the poor, the needy and the sick. He healed the deaf and the blind and the paralyzed to proclaim that in him the kingdom of God had come.

As disciples of Jesus the people of the ELCL believe that they too are called to care for the poor, the needy and the sick. To assist the church in this work of charity, in 1994 the ELCL established the Diaconate Center. The personnel of the Diaconate Center develops and implements programs and activities of social care, including soup kitchens, support centers for children and families, a Christian hot-line, as well as organizing the training of volunteers for diaconical work in our churches and parishes.

All employees of the Diaconate Center have completed special training so that they might serve others according to Christian understandings and with competence. To achieve optimum effectiveness in its work the Diaconate Center cooperates with both governmental and non-governmental agencies and organizations in Latvia and in other countries.
