The Diakonia Retreat Center houses the factory where we make our candles. It is owned and supported by The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta. Please consider supporting our ministries directly by purchasing the candles you need from The Diakonia Retreat Center.

These candles serve a practical and spiritual need and also unite us as a community.

Thank you for your generous support of our Candle Ministry in the past. The funds derived from the sale of our blessed candles is a tremendous support for our ongoing Ministries.

Some ministries that we support are Family Life, Philoptochos, Youth, Young Adults, Outreach Ministries and others.

The process of theosis takes place with the context of a believing community. As we burn our candles we are reminded the we are to be the light of Christ in the world.
