Why Do We Ordain Priests and Deacons?

Why do we ordain priests and deacons?

"How do we know who to ordain? It is fundamentally a discernment of the church, which is different from any other career path." 

As we prepare to ordain Erik, Krystal, and Wes on June 8, 2024, Bishop Alex answers the questions: why do we ordain people and how does one discern a call to be ordained? We welcome all of you to join us for the ordination service, which will take place at St. Stephen's Anglican Church in Sewickley, PA.
