I am seriously thinking about training for ordination. Would love to get some advice here if possible (I am talking to my Vicar and congregation etc as well!).

I am somewhat conservative in worship - but not rabidly so - consider myself pretty middle of the road really, though with a tendency for Anglo-Catholic/High Church.

2 big questions: 

1:  Where in the US would be the best place to study ?

2:  I am originally from the UK - anyone know the process if I were to be ordained/study here in the US, and then move back to work/be ordained in the UK?

Many thanks in advance
Alan

My best advice for you is to follow your Vicar's advice and the guidelines for ordination and the entire process as established by your Diocese.  There are of course, Canon Laws to follow. But each Diocese "tweeks" the process according to their needs. Has your discernment committee met yet?

[COLOR=darkred]Nashotah House in Wisconsin is a Anglo-Catholic, high church seminary.  [My rector is a graduate.]  http://www.teforall.org/seminaries.html  [/COLOR]- this website will give you information for all Episcopal Seminaries in the US.

Best wishes!!:)

With your Anglo-Catholic tendencies, I would recommend Nashotah House, as Joan said. Interestingly enough, it's the seminary I'm considering most seriously, myself.

In Christ,

Many thanks again I will check this one out for sure. I am also looking into returning to the UK to train as an option.... it will be a difficult decision wherever I chose, as of course I need to consider all my family not just my own needs.
