The Commission on Ministry (COM) advises and assists the bishop in implementing the canons about ministry, in supporting the needs for ministry of all baptized persons, and in the design and oversight of recruitment, discernment, and formation for lay and ordained ministry. In recommending persons for the diaconate and priesthood, it guides and examines individuals through several stages in the process leading to ordination.
Members of the COM are appointed by the bishop for staggered, three-year terms. It is one of three canonically mandated committees of the Commission for Development and Nurture of Ministry.
