Clergy Development

The committee’s purpose is to coordinate areas of clergy nurture on a diocesan level throughout the year: Clergy and Bishop’s Days, Clergy Fall Retreat and Mid-winter Clergy and Spouses Gatherings. The committee meets year round to plan monthly continuing education offerings for clergy as well as an annual Lenten Quiet Day.
