THE CLERICAL STATE

 

The Evangelical Catholic Church celebrates Godís gift of a vocation to the Priesthood and Diaconate to those whom He has called.

Within this Catholic jurisdiction, any woman or man can become a candidate for Orders, regardless of marital status, ethnicity, orientation, race, or socio-economic standing.

The Evangelical Catholic Church also welcomes inactive validly ordained deacons and priests and validly consecrated bishops who wish continue celebrating the gift of their vocations to consider Incardination into our Catholic jurisdiction. We welcome inactive clergy from other Christian denominations who find themselves called to our sacramental and liturgical lifestyle to enter our formation process to ordination.

The Evangelical Catholic Church cannot accept candidates for Orders or Incardination who have been convicted of felonious sexual abuse.
