Chaplain to Retired Clergy
The concept for this position originated with the Episcopal Church Pension Fund. The mission for this position is to serve as both a resource and a support for Retired Clergy and Surviving Spouses.
The precise methods to accomplish this mission are as varied as the people involved. As the Diocese of East Carolina covers a large territory, the primary connection is carried out through yearly letters to each of the designated recipients. The letter explains that the Chaplain is available to assist with questions regarding Pension or Health Care or finances or local contacts or just to keep in touch. The clergy and surviving spouses have responded via telephone calls, letters and e-mails.
