The Commission on Ministry (CoM) will hold its annual Explorers’ Retreat the weekend of January 31, 2020, at the Procter Center. The retreat is a required first step in the diocesan process for those discerning a call to ordained ministry. The retreat will begin with dinner at Procter on Friday and end Saturday mid-afternoon. 

To attend the retreat, an Explorer must have been in discussions for a year with his/her priest about discernment and the priest must notify the CoM that he/she supports the Explorer entering this process. In addition, the Explorer must have been a member of the Episcopal Church for the past two years. Prior to the retreat, each Explorer will complete a questionnaire about his/her spiritual journey and fill out a preliminary application.  Further information can be found here.
