Question 210

Hi, Father  How does someone go about becoming a priest in the Greek orthodox Church?

 

Answer to Question 210

 

 There are certain rules that govern who is eligible for the priesthood that most bishops strictly adhere to, but I do know of cases where these have been dismissed. If someone wishes to join the priesthood he should first speak with his bishop who will take it from there
