Diocese of Chichester


Jonathan Prichard is the person responsible for coordinating support to retired clergy in the diocese. He will work with a team of four priests, who will each be responsible for pastoral care of retired clergy in a particular archdeaconry.

Retiring clergy are offered membership of the Retired Clergy Association and there are some local chapters of the RCA scattered around the diocese. CONNECT (formerly Clergy Spouses) also include widows/widowers in events.

There will be an annual gathering/hospitality event for retired clergy, attended by the appropriate bishop and archdeacon.
