Regional Deans

Regional deans offer representative leadership on behalf of the clergy of their region through their work in chairing and setting the agenda for regional clericus meetings. They also take part in induction services, represent clergy at other functions, and work in close collaboration with their regional archdeacon.

Nominated by clergy of a region, and appointed by the bishop, regional deans serve for a term of three years, in accordance with Canon 3.4 and approved nomination procedures.

The regional clericus, made up of the licensed clergy of the region, gather regularly to support one another through relationship and mutual concerns. Facilitated by the regional dean, the clericus shares in study, meditation, and other spiritual and professional development activities, and coordinate matters of pastoral concern to the region of community. A clericus also considers any matters specifically referred to them by the bishop or diocesan committees, and collectively pursue matters of professional concern.
