Deaneries

Deaneries are structures whereby the Diocesan Bishop can exercise his ministry in a more effective way. They are therefore smaller areas allowing more localised pastoral and administrative action, in harmony with the diocesan vision and planning.

Deaneries are placed under the care of a Vicar Forane (Dean) who is to assist the Diocesan Bishop in his ministry. Each deanery also has a deanery co-ordinator who works with the dean and the deanery co-ordinating team at local level and the diocesan bishop and his pastoral team at the diocesan level. Deaneries therefore form an integral part of the diocesan structure.
