Clergy Ministerial Development
Applications for grants are reviewed on an individual basis, however they are discretionary. Priority for such grants is given to those working on learning outcomes from the Ministerial Development Review (MDR) process. Retreats are not funded by the CMD grants and should be included in parish working expenses.
