Christian ministry continues in the senior years of life. Our diocese supports two residential communities for mature adults.
for the past 50 years, our diocese has operated St. Crispin's Camp and
Conference Center in central Oklahoma. Those who come to the conference center
are immersed in the beauty of the natural setting of 450 acres of wooded,
rolling hills and two pristine, spring-fed lakes. Here people from all walks of

also have a diocesan IONA School of Formation, a three-year education and
formation program for those discerning a call to an ordained vocation of deacon
or priest. This school is part of the larger IONA Initiative, which includes 18
dioceses that share resources and develop programs together. The Seminary of
the Southwest serves as the institutional home of the IONA Initiative and, in
conjunction with each diocesan Bishop, is responsible for certifying that each
student has satisfactorily completed the academic requirements.
