Information about diocesan policies:
Rhode Island’s beach communities, villages and cities are attractive retirement choices for many clergy. The diocese works with retired clergy who wish to be engaged in ministry to match them with needs in the diocese. One popular option is for teams of two retired clergy to serve a small congregation enabling clergy to serve without worrying about taking time off for health reasons or to visit those endearing grandchildren! Many of our clergy and congregations welcome retired clergy to serve in a variety of capacities. Some retired clergy find service in nonprofits meaningful while others provide valuable assistance to a wide range of committees, commissions and diocesan programs and others serve as consultants or in volunteer adjunct diocesan staff roles. Bring your dreams for ministry and we’ll help you find a way to make them become reality!
There are many careers in ministry that don’t require ordination. Are you called to one? Here’s a list of what is available throughout the Diocese of RI.
