Nomination Forms

step one

The first forms in the ordination process are the Nomination for Postulancy for the Diaconate (in PDF or in Microsoft Word) and Nomination for Postulancy for the Priesthood (in PDF or Microsoft Word) forms. Use these forms to Nominate someone in your community for postulancy. Online forms will be available in the coming weeks.

Step Two

The second form in the ordination process is the Application for Candidacy. Use this form to endorse someone in your community, who has been made a postulant, for candidacy. 

step three

The Community of Faith Endorsement Application for Ordination to the Diaconate and the Application for the Ordination to the Transitional Diaconate are used to nominate someone in your community, who has already been made a candidate. This is the last form in the ordination process for a vocational deacon and the third form for a transitional deacon.

The Community of Faith Endorsement Application for Ordination to the Priesthood is used to endorse someone in your community, who has already been ordained a transitional deacon, to the priesthood. This is the last form in the ordination process for priests.
