Supply Clergy
Supply Clergy currently available in the Diocese of Southern Virginia.


For the most current list of supply clergy, please contact Shauna Daley, sdaley@diosova.org.

It is the explicit desire of the Diocese that parishes, missions, and mission stations to be served by clergy called by the congregation or assigned by the Bishop. There may be exceptional occasions where such is not the case, and that other clergy may be asked by the congregation to supply specific (or in some cases general) liturgical or pastoral services. Supply clergy covering in transitional times or for a longer time-period are to be appropriately compensated and are not to be seen or understood as a replacement for called or assigned clergy.

It is the responsibility of the parish to pay the cost of supply clergy for services when the Rector/Vicar/Priest-in-Charge is away from his or her duties due to vacation, continuing education, illness or injury. A schedule of recommended minimum fees for occasional supply clergy services is as follows:

  • Midweek Service: $120.00
  • One Sunday Service with Sermon: $180.00
  • Two Sunday Services with Sermon: $240.00
  • Three Sunday Services with Sermon: $300.00

Besides the fee(s) suggested immediately above, supply clergy should be reimbursed by the church for all reasonable costs related to services rendered and may include: meals, lodging, telephone and travel at the current IRS-published business mileage rate.
