Our clergy usually retire at 75 years of age, although some continue in active ministry into their 80s, whilst others are forced to retire due to ill-health. The Archdiocese of Southwark has a duty of care for their well-being after a lifetime of service: if you would like to consider supporting our clergy at their time of need you can read about the Clergy Support Fund and donate here
