Wedding Officiant Trainer and Coach

Many organizations are training people to become wedding celebrants these days.  It is a wonderful way to help people and earn some income at the same time. 

With 30 years of experience, Deb can help.  She has been involved in hundreds of weddings and can assist with questions or your confidence level.  As a bishop, she has trained candidates to officiate at weddings, funeral and other life celebrations.  

If you live in Ontario, Deb can train you and get you licensed as a Pastoral Chaplain in our church.  If you live outside of Ontario, Deb can train you as an officiant and help you feel more confident as you develop your wedding ministry.

Have you been looking for a way to become a wedding officiant? We can help! Become a Pastoral Chaplain with our inclusive progressive church.  Training sessions are scheduled throughout the year.

We meet online on Zoom, a user-friendly platform you can use on any device. In the session, you'll learn about the role of the Pastoral Chaplain and especially, the elements involved with working with couples and offering meaningful, personalized weddings in accordance with the Province of Ontario.

It is intense but we have a lot of fun! All materials and resources will be sent to you electronically. We conclude with the chaplain commissioning ceremony.

To register: Candidates must be baptized, obtain a police clearance report and complete a Chaplain application form.

Pastoral chaplains must agree with the policies and mission of our inclusive and progressive church and uphold the rights of all people. They must agree to officiate at all weddings, including same-gender.

The Call to Ordained Ministry

Train to be a Deacon, and later a Priest

The call to a life of service in the name of Jesus is a most rewarding yet challenging path.  The Community Catholic Church of Canada is blessed to have a team of clergy who are caring, compassionate and deeply committed to being ambassadors of Christ's teachings and Good News in the world.

We offer a six-month program through St Francis Seminary for those who feel called to ordained ministry beginning with studies for the diaconate. If desired, graduates of the program can go forward to the Priesthood.  Our minimum age requirement for those seeking holy orders is 25 years of age.

The next Diploma in Ministry Course leading to ordination as a deacon in our Church begins in November 2019.   Please contact Archbishop Deborah at bishopdeb@sympatico.ca if you have questions or would like to register.
