Pastoral Care to Retired Clergy and Spouses

Additional Navigation

David & Paula SutcliffeThe Rev. David and Paula Sutcliffe have a special ministry providing pastoral care to retired clergy and their spouses.

“It is not always easy adjusting to life after retirement,” says David.  “It certainly can be difficult if there are health issues, losses or other situations that prove to be isolating or challenging,”

He and Paula oversaw this ministry in a previous diocese and are now connecting with the retired clergy of the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina.

If you know of retired clergy  and/or spouses who might benefit from a visit, a phone call a written note, please contact the Sutcliffes.

“We want to be sure our retired clergy and spouses know they are not forgotten,” says Paula. “Please contact either of us if you are or know of anyone who might appreciate this ministry. We want to connect with anyone who may need our presence.”

They are happy to provide pastoral care and support wherever needed.
