Anyone interested in studying for Holy Orders needs to apply to the bishops, including a curriculum vitae, an explanation of their vocational feelings such as why they feel they are called, establish a dialogue with our hierarchy, and then we will analyze their data and get back to them.

Those who have completed their training, or desire special consideration, should contact our bishops with their feelings. If you are already ordained, and would like to incardinate, contact us directly with your application.
