Prior to ordination as a Sub-Deacon, Deacon, or Priest in any jurisdiction within the Old Holy Roman Church of the English Rite, the candidate must demonstrate proficiency in each of the areas of public worship and sacraments as detailed below. This must be performed either in person or by video/audio before an examiner appointed by the Patriarchal See, which may delegate this authority to the various provinces and dioceses. This requirement is intended as much as a learning exercise as an examination.
