There are three basic levels of ordination in Anglicanism: bishop, priest and deacon. All ordained ministers start out as deacons. Most move on to become priests in about a year. The occupation of priest is the most common level of ordained clergy in member churches of the Anglican communion. They are the lowest level of minister permitted to preside at the Eucharist. See Wikipedia: Anglican ministry.

Deacons who later became priests, archbishops, bishops, deans, or archdeacons are usually categorized according to those positions. Deacons of the Episcopal Church in the United States of American who were not later ordained at a higher level may be placed here. If this category becomes overly crowded, subcategories may be created for deacons assigned to specific dioceses.
