Priesthood Council

PRIESTHOOD COUNCIL (Canons 5.4 and 10.2)

The next circle outward of the Ecclesiastical Web is the Priesthood Council, which is comprised of all active ordained members of the Priesthood.

The purpose of the Priesthood Council is to advance the vision and spiritual direction of the Church. The Priesthood Council determines the qualifications for Ministerial licensing and ordination, accepts, reviews, and approves or rejects applications for the Clergy; and issues certificates of licensing to those approved as Ministers, and of ordination to those Postulants who shall have fulfilled their qualifications for the Priesthood.

In addition, the Priesthood Council, through its delegated authority, Lifeways, the teaching branch of CAW, determines the qualifications for advancement through the RINGs and provides the day-to-day RINGs oversight (i.e., that which does not require the involvement of the Council of Elders, such as normal advancement through and determination of active or inactive status in the RINGs program.) In addition, the Priesthood Council provides spiritual visioning, leadership of Hestia’s Guild, CAW’s Religious Life and Spirituality guild, and oversight of all subordinate organizations having to do with Religious Life & Spirituality.
