Transition Ministry

The following is provided for clergy interested in serving in the Diocese of Springfield.

We welcome your interest and inquiries about vacancies in the Diocese. All inquiries about vacancies should be directed to the Reverend Canon Mark Evans, Canon to the Ordinary.

When a vacancy occurs and a Eucharistic Community in the Diocese of Springfield is ready to receive names of potential candidates, a file of the relevant information is created for each candidate. Our preference is for interested clergy to send all material directly to the Canon to the Ordinary by email. Material sent directly to congregations for any position, are forwarded automatically to the Canon to the Ordinary. The Bishop’s office will review all nominations prior to submission to search committees.

Clergy must have an updated OTM Portfolio. Other material may be sent (such as a current resume) either as an email attachment or by mail. These are not, however, used in the initial phase of a search. Clergy are discouraged from sending sermons, published articles, videos and cassette tapes, etc. to the Diocesan Office.
