Clergy Care Fund

Caring for those who have cared for us—
supporting the retirement and health of our clergy

Just like parents, our clergy never truly retire from looking after their spiritual family. Theirs is a lifelong commitment to guide and support their flock, making it crucial for us to care for them during their retirement years.

How can you help?

Your tax-deductible* donation to the Clergy Care Fund helps us to ensure a dignified retirement for our diocesan clergy through suitable accommodation, transport assistance and holistic health care. Currently, there are 13 clergy in retirement. It is likely that we will have an additional 8 diocesan clergy retiring over the next 5 years. As a matter of priority, we need to ensure that we have the resources to continue to care for our ageing clergy.
