Retired clergy


Retired clergy

Retired clergy remain a huge asset in the Diocese of Ely, being present in parishes preaching, leading, taking special services, serving and supporting in all kinds of ways. 

The Retired Clergy Officer(s) and the Clergy Widows Officer are available to support all retired clergy and their families in the Diocese.

They meet annually with the Bishop who invites all retired clergy, spouses, partners, widows and widowers to an annual gathering at the cathedral, which begins with a Eucharist at 10.30 am and concludes with lunch.
