The Diocesan Office team recognise that the Diocesan Directory is an extremely useful resource for those across our Diocese.
However at the moment, just like many parishes, we are in the process of ensuring that we meet the requirements of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations), which come into effect in May 2015.
In order to continue to publish or share your contact information (such as on the website or Diocesan Directory), or with a colleague within the wider diocese (i.e. giving an LLMs phone number to a member of the Clergy for Diocesan business), a record of having obtained your clear consent for us to do this will be required.
This requirement has meant putting in place a number of system enhancements in order for us to effectively receive the required permissions from individuals.
We are now close to putting these systems in place, and hope soon be able to invite colleagues to provide us with their contact information permissions so that a Directory can once again be made available.
In the meantime, our apologies for any inconvenience caused. More information of the Diocese's Data Protection Overview can be found here.
