  • Clergy Licensing

    The Diocese of SWFL licenses clergy for 5 years. Clergy license expiration dates coincide with the expiration of the required background check. Every 5 years, clergy are contacted to renew their background checks. At the same time, the extra-canonical provisions of up-to-date Safeguarding and Anti Racism training are verified. After satisfaction of these requirements, the license renewals are reviewed by the Bishop.

    Clergy from outside the diocese who are interested in seeking a ministry license within SWFL are invited to reach out to the Office of the Canon to the Ordinary for more information: [email protected].
