A word of appreciation to the Presiding Bishop and to the Ven. Rick Cluett, whose two-year appointment as her deputy to the reorganizing dioceses ended with the close of 2010.
Father Cluett provided pastoral and practical guidance to diocesan leaders during that time. Many people here will remember him as an organizer and presenter at CREDO's Strength for the Journey conference last May. He will continue on as a project manager with CREDO.
Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said she was grateful for Father Cluett's work during "very difficult circumstances."
Bishop Price recently told Father Cluett, "I cannot overstate how much we have appreciated your attention and care for us here in Pittsburgh. Thanks again for all you have done."
