In the Anglican tradition, the priesthood is open to men and women, married or single, who have earned the Master of Divinity degree, completed a series of courses for ordinands, and gone through the discernment process. The clergy of Christ Church consists of ordained priests and deacons, each of whom serves a staff function in addition to the role as pastor to our congregation.
