Ordination Exploration Process
The Ordination Exploration process assists you and the church in providing opportunities for assessment, exploration, and discernment of a call to ordination.

 

Canons of The Episcopal Church USA – The Canons pertaining to ordination are in Title III, Canons 6, 8, and 10

If you are interested in exploring a sense of call to ministry, please contact your rector, priest-in-charge or the Dean of your Convocation.

If you are a member of a congregation engaged in a search process for a rector, you will have to wait to apply until after the new rector has arrived.

If you are ordained in another Christian body, please contact the Rev. Canon Ed Tracy, etracy@diosova.org or 757-213-3378, who will be glad to discuss the process with you.
