Welcome one and all to this, the occasion of the Ordination of three of our members!

Let us begin the ceremony in reflection :

We offer our thanks for the insight that springs from the Force as we seek to apply it to our lives.

As beings of light, we connect with our brothers and sisters in the Universal Moment,

And as beings of flesh and bone, our footsteps walk this Earth and echo in time.

Grant us the focus, knowledge and wisdom to live each moment as best we can --

As mortal creatures,

As eternal souls,

As Jedi.


May the Force be with you all …

The Force guides everyone to serve in their own particular way and some of these people are called to minister its truths and mysteries to others.

As servants of the people, Ministers are to shepherd them on their respective paths and to guide them to self-discovery and understanding.

With their fellow Ministers, they are to sustain the community of the faithful by the ministry of doctrine and guidance, that we all may grow into the fullness of the Force and better understand ourselves.

Will the candidates please step forward and announce themselves ?

Ministers are called to be servants among the people. They are to be messengers, watchmen and stewards of the Church. They are to teach and to admonish, to nourish and to support, and to guide the people through the confusions of life, that they may grow in knowledge and wisdom of the Force.

As Jedi they are to protect the peace and defend the weak. As Ministers they are to uplift the spirit through the guidance of the Doctrine and the wisdom of the Force. With the qualities of compassion, understanding, tolerance and acceptance, they are to open their arms to embrace the community and to provide counsel in times of need.

They are to minister to the sick and prepare those who are transitioning from this world and back to the Force, supporting all those who are affected by such changes. Standing together with their brothers and sisters, they are to provide light through the darkness, that the whole Church may be built up in unity and faith.

In addition to this, Ordination is a commitment for life. It can only be rescinded in the most severe of circumstances as this is a contract between the Minister and the Force, a dedication to serving the people through the Doctrine and the guidance of the Force. This promise is written on the soul and strengthens every fiber of the spirit; as such it is not to be taken lightly and without due consideration.
