Explorers’ Retreat

January 27, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - January 28, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Are you discerning a call to ordained ministry? Do you want to explore further that pull you feel to be a deacon or priest?

In our Diocese, one enters discernment for ordained ministry by attending the Explorers’ Retreat, organized by the Commission on Ministry (CoM). The Explorers’ Retreat has two parts; Part 1 is a two-hour Information Session, held on Saturday, November 12, from 10 AM to noon, by Zoom. Part 2 is an overnight at Procter Camp and Conference Center, scheduled for January 28-29. Note that the November 12 session is a prerequisite for the January Explorers’ Retreat.

The Jan 27-28 Explorers’ Retreat will run from 5 p.m. Friday until about 4 p.m. Saturday and include an overnight stay at Procter. This session is limited to Explorers who have submitted an application to attend, including a Faith Story and their priest’s endorsement. (To be clear, neither the Explorer’s priest nor spouse attend the Explorers’ Retreat.)

Register for the retreat here. There is a $100 fee for the Explorer’s Retreat.

If you have questions or need more information, contact Sarah Beegle, Assistant to the Canons, at sbeegle@diosohio.org or Robin Holland, incoming Chair of the Commission on Ministry, at rholl10554@aol.com. If an Explorer is unable to attend the November 12 session but wants to engage the process this year, please contact Sarah Beegle or Robin Holland to discuss alternative arrangements.
