“Clergy moves” is an aspect of Church life that most priests and parishioners know they must live through every few years. It can be a challenging time for all concerned. The priest must pack up his belongings, say his farewells, move to a place — usually not of his choosing — and then attempt to settle into his new surroundings. Parishioners might be joyful about the change of priest, or sad to see the outgoing priest leave. Sometimes, when the clergy moves happen frequently, parishioners may even disengage and possibly not even try to connect with the “new bloke”. Such transitions can be fraught for both parties.
