Take a step in exploring how God may be calling you
Have you ever felt a nagging deep inside, wondering about whether you may be called to ordained ministry? Have you been fighting that feeling? Have others in your life told you you should consider becoming a deacon or priest? Are you interested in exploring a call to ordained ministry?
Then this is the weekend for you.
The Episcopal Dioceses of Eastern and Western Michigan, in collaboration with the Academy for Vocational Leadership and the Iona Collaborative from the Seminary of the Southwest, is extending an invitation to come together for a weekend of discernment. This event is a first step into considering formal discernment for Holy Orders and is open to all.
Our retreat, which will include both time in plenary and discussion, gathers at 5:30pm for dinner on Friday, August 11th and concludes following lunch on Sunday, August 13th.
