Long-Time Executive Assistant to the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh Set to Retire ndblake Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 1:28pm



The strength of the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh is in the people that call it home. It is found in the enthusiasm of our laity, the wisdom of our clergy, and the faithfulness of our staff and volunteers. 

Ad Clerum on Retirement from Bishop Martyn Minns (Part 2)

The first and perhaps most important question is, “What are we retiring to?” Not “What are we retiring from?” Bishop Dave Bena, a dear friend and mentor, has retired a number of times. He retired from military service (he served with distinction as a Marine and then in the US Air Force), and he retired as the suffragan bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany, as my suffragan bishop in CANA, and most recently as the assistant bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word. He is something of an expert on retirement! But he spells it “retire-ment,” declaring that it is an opportunity to change tires and start a new journey.
