Retired clergy

Our orders are for life but how we fulfil our promises changes throughout our lives.

One of the biggest changes is the transition which comes in retirement. As a diocese, we thank God for the faithful and gifted service of all of our retired clergy, however it is offered. 

Below you'll find links to everything you need to know. If you think we've missed anything, let us know.
