Retired Clergy, Widows & Widowers Committee

Supporting all retired clergy personnel including spouses (male and female, plus sons and daughters).

Each Deanery within the Diocese of Norwich has a Bishop’s representative who is either a Rural Dean, retired clergy or a widow themselves, who care for the above along with their respective incumbents.

The Deanery Representatives help the retired folk with advice over grants and which suitable charity can be approached to meet their particular need, residential and respite care, budgeting and general pastoral care. The Bishop’s staff are very supportive in all this work.

Every two years Bishop Graham holds an afternoon tea in his garden followed by a service in the Cathedral as a thank you for all the different ministries of the retired in the Diocese.
