The Office for Ordained Vocations works closely with the bishops and the Commission on Ministry in the recruitment, discernment and formation of postulants and candidates for ordained leadership as deacons and priests in the Episcopal Church. For information contact the Rev. Canon Edie Dolnikowski, Canon for Ordained Vocations, at edie [at] diomass [dot] org.
For those interested in ordination, discernment information is attached below. All inquirers must attend Ministry Discernment Conference in the year in which they plan to apply to the process (see page 13 of the handbook, attached below). The conference is offered once a year, on the first Saturday in February.
The 2016 Ministry Discernment Conference will be held on Saturday, Feb. 6; in 2017, it is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 4.
