Diocese of Westminster
The Department for the Clergy and Consecrated Life is under the care and direction of Bishop Alan Hopes. It is principally concerned with the well-being and appointment of priests and deacons of the Diocese and the religious men and women living and ministering within the Diocese, either in parishes or other apostolates. Under its care are those responsible for the sick and retired priests of the Diocese and the team of Episcopal Vicars for Religious. This Department shares with the Pastoral Department the care for Ethnic Chaplains and their communities.
