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.
Please register by Friday, April 13
- Aspirants to the Vocational Diaconate: please contact The Venerable Peter Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Aspirants to the Priesthood: please contact Mr. Larry Sunden at email@example.com
Deadline: Friday, April 13, 2018
