*Clergy who are not incardinated in the Archdiocese of Hartford must request permission from the Archbishop to minister here; that is, they request faculties.
**Because deacons and priests have received the sacrament of holy orders and therefore never retire in the canonical sense, the term “senior priest” describes their status.
