Are you discerning a call from God? Perhaps it’s a call to ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church?
Ordination in the Episcopal Church is a communal call – we don’t get to just decide ourselves that we’re going to be a priest or a deacon. We must enter into a time of communal discernment, where your bishop, your priest, your community, deacons, and laypeople help us understand what God is calling us to do and be.
The first step in this journey is to speak to your local clergy person – the next step is to attend the upcoming Day of Information, to be held on February 17 at St. Thomas, Temecula (44651 Avenida De Missiones, Temecula, CA 92592), from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Bishop Susan Brown Snook and the members of the Commission on Ministry will be there to tell you more about the priesthood and the diaconate, and to share the details of the discernment process.
If you would like to attend, your clergy person must approve your attendance, and ideally, will attend with you. If you do not have a settled clergy person at your church, or if your clergyperson cannot attend with you, please contact the Rev. Canon Gwynn Lynch at email@example.com for assistance.
