All deacons residing in the Diocese of Rochester and those in formation are asked to support the organization. The only source of revenue for SSDCA is the annual dues, payable in January of each year for the calendar year.

Currently the dues are $20.00 per person, $40.00 per couple.

Dues support all of our activities, SSDCA tithes its revenue at 10% which is transferred to the St. Lawrence Fund with the diocese to support deacons and their families when in need.

Widows and deacons residing outside of the diocese are encouraged to pay dues but they are not required or billed.
