Success After Seminary

Success After Seminary supplements your studies with practical information you’ll need before accepting your first cure.

Topics include:

  • Your pension and future benefits
  • Cash and debt management
  • Leadership development
  • Parish finances and administration

Spouses/partners are encouraged to attend, as there will be a special session for them on roles and identity.

This is a great opportunity to network with peers and future colleagues from other seminaries, while learning about the Church Pension Group and the Episcopal Church Foundation — your partners after ordination.

Who Should Attend

Seminarians — middlers, seniors, and those in Anglican Studies certificate programs — who are preparing for ordination to the priesthood in The Episcopal Church.
