The Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut

Recently Ordained Clergy (ROC)

Recently Ordained Clergy (ROC) is a program that is offered by the Canon for Mission Leadership. The program seeks to provide a time of fellowship and formation for newly ordained clergy serving in the Episcopal Church in CT. Participants have the opportunity to share experiences and gain feedback through  check-ins and sharing of critical incidents. Each overnight session is devoted to a particular topic. Topics can include: clergy health and wellness, ongoing formation, search and call process, God's mission, clergy collaboration, financial planning, time management, and marriage judgments. All this is done within the context of prayer, Bible study and worship. If you have questions about ROC, please contact the Canon for Mission Leadership.
