Abstract

This essay is an examination of the theology of ministry and its orders, written from an intentionally ecumenical and liturgically sensitive perspective. It develops a theology of ministry “grounded in the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, mediated by the Holy Spirit in the sacramental experiences of Christian Initiation, and flowing from and leading to the liturgical assembly.” Drawing on the teachings of both Anglican and Roman Catholic traditions, it considers each order of ministry in relation to the other, and to the mission of the church as the community of the baptized, the body of Christ present in the world.
