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 family gatherings. The committee meets year round to plan monthly continuing education offerings for clergy as well as annual Advent and Lenten Quiet Days. For information and upcoming events, see below and check the diocesan event calendar.
