Each student who signs up for the course will be required to get the approval of a member of their Parish Clergy, who will serve as your MENTOR during the 9-15 months it will take to finish the course. The course requires that you work closely with your Mentor. Evaluations of your work are done jointly by you and your Clergy Mentor. These are submitted along with your written course-work for final review by the leadership of the Guild. The Course is designed around learning and exploring all aspects of your parish, from the building and its history, the people and their history, operations, archives, pastoral care, and of course, aspects of the history and development of the Office and Ministry of the Verger, the vestments, virges, and vagueries of the Office. (NOTE: Despite attempts to the contrary from papal edict, to Acts of Uniformity, to liturgical manuals past and present, there has never been a single universal liturgical custom. While this course and other texts may suggest certain ways to do liturgy and perform ritual, the local custom of your parish, and the wishes of your rector, who has canonical responsibility for the parish liturgy, must take precedence. Any deviation from the parish custom must be done with the full cooperation and support of your rector.)
