Incardinating Clergy

The Community Catholic Church of Canada offers clergy the best of all worlds. 

We are free to serve the Creator, living out our calling in an environment of acceptance and inclusivity.  Each parish community worships in the way that resonates most truly - using the Roman missal, the Anglican missal or other authorized liturgical format.


For ordained Catholic or Anglican clergy in the Province of Ontario who are without a bishop, the Community Catholic Church of Canada offers a spiritual home in which you may administer the sacraments and build your own parish. You must be a Canadian citizen or a legal resident of Canada and willing to undergo screening for suitability, including a police check.

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.


Process:
There is an application process and interview.  There is a $100 application fee.  You will need to send along a copy of your baptism, confirmation and ordination certificates.  We will also need a current police check and personal references.  We will also need an excardination form form your bishop or religious body.


Every candidate's needs are different. Depending on background and experience preparation can be a month or longer determined though Spiritual Direction and CCC training.  There is a $400 fee for this.


A ceremony of incardination will take place at a mutually convenient date. 

For more information and to receive an application packet, please contact Archbishop Deborah Vaughan.
