This is a course of study through St Francis Seminary, designed specifically for our denomination, with courses and pastoral preparation offered to those who will serve in the Community Catholic Church. St. Francis offers a Six-Month Diploma in Pastoral Ministry program for the Diaconate, and, for those seeking orders to the Priesthood, a year-long Diploma in Sacramental Ministry. All applicants must be self-supporting.
Acceptance to the seminary is contingent upon interviews, application review and screening. The courses are mostly accomplished online, but there are some onsite requirements and regular phone meetings with an assigned Spiritual Director.
Please be aware that clergy of the Community Catholic Church of Canada receive no compensation by the National Church for their ministries and must be otherwise gainfully employed.
For more information contact the Presiding Bishop
For those who do not feel a call to ministry as deacons and priests but are active volunteers in their community or have an interest in wedding ministry, the Pastoral Chaplaincy program offers a way for you to fulfill your spiritual and charitable works.
Pastoral Chaplaincy is offered to those successful candidates who live in the province of Ontario.
