Hearing God’s Call
August 8 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
On Saturday 8 August the St James’ Institute presents a special panel discussion on Anglican vocations and ministry. This event will be held entirely online and is free to attend. The panel is made up of four recently ordained Anglican priests all of whom were parishioners of either St James’ King Street or Christ Church St Laurence, each trained at a different theological college, and each is now serving in a different diocese. This discussion aims to lift the lid on the mysterious journey towards ordination and each of our panellists will share their story in responding to God’s call to the ordained life.
The Rev’d Ryan Austin-Eames studied at St Mark’s College, Canberra, now serving as priest in the Parish of Colac in the Diocese of Ballarat
The Rev’d Angela Peverell studied at Trinity College Melbourne, now serving as Sub-Dean of Newcastle Cathedral
The Rev’d Kate Ross studied at Yale Divinity School, now serving as Assistant Curate at St John’s Cathedral in Brisbane.
The Rev’d Antony Weiss studied at Moore College, now serving as Chaplain of St Paul’s College within the University of Sydney.
The panel will be hosted by SJI Director Christopher Waterhouse who is currently studying at Trinity College Melbourne and is a candidate in discernment for the diocese of Tasmania.
