Guidance on Leave and Restriction from Sacred Ministry and Apostolate for Clergy and Religious

Guidance Document

This document has  been produced by the National Board following an extensive consultation process.  It represents guidance rather than direction for the Church. It does not diminish the authority of the Ordinary in anyway with regard to the management of these important issues. It has been produced to provide help to the decision making that has to be undertaken when matters of this nature arise.
