It is composed of women who are devout, holy and in good standing in their local churches. They may or may not be deacon’s wives. It is the duty of the deaconesses to make adequate preparation for all baptisms. We are to make sure that all supplies are clean and in good repair, see that all female candidates are attired in proper garments and in place for the baptismal services.
