2022 Ministry Discernment Conference


Update:  This event will be held virtually via Zoom.  The annual Ministry Discernment Conference offered by the bishops and the Commission on Ministry will be held online on Saturday, Feb. 5, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

The conference will provide an in-depth look at the 2022 edition of the Ministry Discernment Handbook and gives potential inquirers an opportunity to learn about the ordination process in the Diocese of Massachusetts as they consider whether their call is to ordained ministry or committed lay ministry. Any person considering applying for admission to the ordination process in 2022 is required to attend the conference, along with a sponsoring priest and at least one member of the Parish Discernment Committee.

Register here.

Questions may be directed to the Rev. Canon Edie Dolnikowski, Canon for Ordained Vocations (edie@diomass.org or 617-482-4826, ext. 514).
