VOCATIONS & CLERGY SUPPORT Overview

This Commission was organized in 1964 for the purpose of encouraging and assisting young men toward the goal of priesthood under the name Clergy Candidate Commission. The Commission Chair is responsible for the administration of the Metropolitan John Scholarship Fund which is used to award scholarships and continuing education grants to seminarians and clergy of our Church. This Commission works closely with the Consistory’s Office of Vocations and the Rector of Saint Sophia Seminary to promote vocation programs and activities. It is also responsible for notifying and encouraging chapters to honor their Spiritual Advisors on Clergy Appreciation Sunday.

Clergy Appreciation Day:  In 1969, the 22nd Annual Convention resolved that the first Sunday after Ascension Day be established as Clergy Apprciation Day.  This Sunday is designated as a day when Chapters may take an opportunity to honor their Spiritual Advisors.  

Metropolitan John Scholarship Fund (MJSF):  Grants Scholarships and loans to seminarians and clergy with the goal of becoming a priest in the UOC of the USA.
