Day of Discernment: two dates available

"Have you ever had a sense that God might be calling you to ordained ministry as a priest or deacon in the Episcopal Church?" asks the Rev. Margaret Grayden, Chair of the Commission on Ministry for the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California. "If so, you and your rector/vicar/priest-in-charge should attend the diocesan Day of Discernment.

She continues, "This is a great opportunity to hear what it's really like to be a priest or deacon in the Episcopal Church today, and to learn how the ordination process works in our diocese."

During the Day of Discernment, presentations on the priesthood, the diaconate, and religious orders active in our diocese will be provided. There will also be an overview of the ordination process (including handing out an application packet and a copy of The Manual and Guide for Ordination). Spouses are also welcome to attend the Day of Discernment.

Attendance is mandatory as the first step in the formal discernment process. Space is limited, so be sure to register ASAP!

There will be two Days of Discernment in 2020:

  • Saturday, Mar. 28, 2020 at the Office of the Bishop in Sacramento
  • Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020 at a location TBD.

 Advance registration is required. For more information and to register, click here
