We use the phrase "cleric" on this website to signify someone who has been ordained in the Anglican Church and serves in the Church in Wales.
Traditionally, those called by the church to priesthood spend twelve months serving as a deacon before being ordained priest. There are others who are called to a distinctive ministry as deacons.
When you search for a cleric, you will be able to see the dates of their ordination as deacon and, if relevant, as priest. Whilst these are the dates at which a cleric starts their ministry as deacon or priest after their training, they may well have been involved with the church in different roles prior to these dates.
Each cleric has been given the option of withholding the details of their name, address, phone and fax numbers, or email address under the terms of the Data Protection Act.
