Diocesan Board of Examining Chaplains

Sanctioning the discernment process for ministry.


The Board meets as needed to prepare for examinations and to conduct written and oral examinations of candidates to the diaconate and the priesthood. Most of its business is conducted by email. We coordinate with the Commission on Ministry as part of the discernment process for ministry. We also coordinate with the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry on the examination of their students and seek ways to share ideas with Examiners in other Dioceses.
