If you wish to invite any members of clergy and involve them in an event’s formalities, please seek advice first from the Directorate of Identity and Mission. Please consult the OVCP Church Protocol Guide when addressing Catholic hierarchy, meeting in person, or corresponding with a member of clergy.
It is important that you include all post-nominals after the surname. The post-nominals should be used when addressing a letter, for example, Most Reverend Denis J Hart DD or Most Reverend Anthony Fisher OP DD.
For any questions regarding these protocols, please contact the Directorate of Identity and Mission. For further information, please refer to the online Catholic Directory.
