The Society of Scholar-Priests

SSP-LogoLrgFNLThe Society of Scholar-Priests creates space for scholar-priests to engage with others in their unique vocation. Though a diffuse society, fellowship is vital to our flourishing and members are accordingly encouraged to attend the annual SPI/SSP Conference and form local SSP chapters in their deaneries, dioceses, and/or provinces. Members also have special access to the SPI website, including read and post abilities on the job board and the blog.

SPI is a movement in and for The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada. For that reason, the following criteria must be met for full membership.
