MINISTRY ISSUES FOR PRIESTS, DEACONS, BISHOPS, AND LAY MINISTERS

DIRECTORY
Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori of Nevada is a member of this Committee


WEDNESDAY June 14: Bishop Katharine writes from the meeting of the committee on Ministry:

The Ministry Committee has come close to finishing its work on the variety of other resolutions beyond the Title III revisions, and hopes to finish its work on the Ministry canons (Title III) tomorrow.

MONDAY June 12 she wrote:

Ministry [is cosidering] proposed changes to Title III (the Canons on ministry). The current proposal would remove the minimum time periods from postulancy, candidacy, and the transitional diaconate – and shift to a minimum of 18 months from an aspirant’s acceptance of nomination to ordination (either as vocational deacon or priest).

Another proposal would restore the role of Standing Committee in consenting to Candidacy (as they did before 2003).
