Prayer for Guidance in finding a new Rector (BCP)
Almighty God, giver of every good gift:  Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a new Rector for this parish, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries;  through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

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.
