Evening of Discernment Cancelled

Due to insufficient interest, we have cancelled the Evening of Discernment scheduled for April 24, 2018.

Please note that the Commission on Ministry continues the important work of helping clergy and parish discernment committees identify and nurture people who feel called to ordained ministry.
We encourage anyone who is sensing a call to ordained ministry, priestly or diaconal, to visit the Commission on Ministry subpage at the diocesan site and review the Guidelines which describe in detail the process leading to ordination. Aspirants, as well as others, are welcome to contact the chairs of the Committee on the Priesthood and the Committee on the Diaconate with questions.

Evening of Discernment: God is Calling – How Will You Answer?

Tuesday, April 24 2018, 6:00PM

At Episcopal House
This conference, hosted by the Commission on Ministry, will provide an overview of the discernment process.
Those expected to attend are the people discerning their next steps in ministry (called Aspirants), their rectors and all members of their Discernment Committees. Individuals who want to attend by themselves for information and exploration are also invited. Those considering ordination should have already contacted the Commission on Ministry.
The role of the Discernment Committee is very important at the early stage of the process. We have found that this conference helps the Committee members understand better what is expected of them, their subsequent meetings with the Aspirant and the report they will submit to the COM at the completion of their meetings. A light supper will be offered.
To register by Friday, April 13
  • Aspirants to the Vocational Diaconate: please contact The Venerable Peter Jackson at pjackson_69@msn.com
  • Aspirants to the Priesthood: please contact Mr. Larry Sunden at larry@sunden.com

Deadline: Friday, April 13, 2018
