Incumbent or Priest in Charge

Making It Easier > Roles > Clergy > Incumbant or Priest in Charge
Parish ministry is rewarding and challenging as our priests discern what holding the cure of all souls in a parish actually means in their context. It is a varied and complex task with signifcant challenges and high expectations.

If you are a first incumbent or new to our diocese then we will support you through the Fresh Start programme.

Meanwhile we know that your role is varied and potentially all encompassing. So to make it easier for you we have linked to some of the key information you may need to support your parish mission and ministry. There is plenty more information throughout the Making it Easier section of this site.
