    Address a 400-1000 word letter to the Bishop requesting ordination to the diaconate. Describe areas of academic and spiritual growth during Candidacy and how that time has prepared you for ordination to the Diaconate. Outline the goals you have for continued growth during the remainder of your formation.

    For this and subsequent paragraph text fields, we recommend you compose your answers in a minimally formatted word processing document, saving as you go along. Then copy/paste the text of each answer into the appropriate box of this form when you are finished. This approach can help you avoid losing your work if you accidentally close this browser tab.
  • Enter here and a copy of the letter will be automatically sent to the Bishop.
