How To Conduct A Database Search
How To Search Community Ministry Portfolios
The Positions Open Bulletin (POB) used to be created for you. Now, your saved searches constitute your own “POB”. You may identify all worshipping communities in a particular diocese/region, or those in a particular stage of transition, for instance, and keep this list updated that addresses your own specific interests.

We are excited to announce that the Office for Latino/Hispanic Ministry and CDO’s Office for Transition Ministry have developed a bilingual Latino Ministries Database as a great way for you to offer your gifts for ministry to the Church!  This directory is also a tool which dioceses and congregations can use to assist in their discernment processes for calling clergy and lay professionals.
