STEPS TO ORDINATION


No matter if you are an ordained minister, here are the next steps to engage with the CEEC

1. Join an Order

An Order is for individuals from all walks of life who are discerning where God is taking them. If you are interested in joining the CEEC or entering into an ordered life, joining an Order is the first step in that process.

2. Become an Oblate

3. Enter into Holy Orders

Holy Orders (commonly known as ordination or licensing) are for someone that has joined an Order, discerned their calling to vocational ministry, and has received an invitation into Holy Orders from their bishop. 


*Within the CEEC, the terms Diocese and Order are used interchangeably with the distinction that Diocese consist of a collection of parishes and individuals, while an Order is a communion of individuals that may reside within a Diocese.
