This will be greatly assisted by a sense of where people are in terms of their understanding of what priests and vocational deacons are, what they do, and how to identify good priests and vocational deacons. If you are part of The Episcopal Church, please fill this short survey out so that we can better craft our formal discernment training materials (please only fill this out if you are an Episcopalian). The results of this survey that can be kept anonymous will be made publicly available by Canon Chris Corbin (
