ARTICLE 42 – Meetings of Deacons
When the deacons meet separately, as a rule once a month, to deal with the matters pertaining to their office, they shall do so with calling upon the name of God. They shall give account of their labours to the consistory. The ministers shall acquaint themselves with the work of the ministry of mercy and, if need be, may visit these meetings.
Insgelijcx sullen de Diaconen alle weken t’samen comen / om met aenroepinge des Naems Gods vande saecken harê Ampte betreffende te handelen / daer toe die Dienaren goede opsicht sullen nemen / ende des noot zijnde haer daer by laten vinden.
