Every baptized Christian is called to ministry. Through its Commission on Ministry, the diocese helps members determine the nature of their calling, and whether it is best pursued as a lay person or through ordination to the diaconate or priesthood.

Through our Transition Ministry, led by the Rev. Anita Braden, canon to the ordinary, clergy can also learn about parish seeking new clergy leadership, and lay leaders and clergy alike can learn how to handle the period when one ordained leader is leaving and congregation but another has yet to arrive.

In this section, you can learn more about the commission and how it works, and about the nature of the diaconate and the activities of our deacons.
