Episcopal Archdeacon

How to Address an Archdeacon

Envelope, more formal:
—–The Venerable
—–Archdeacon of (place)
—–(Address)

Envelope, a bit less formal:
—–The Venerable (Full Name)
—–Archdeacon of (place)
—–(Address)

If the archdeacon of a diocese, use this form:
—–The Venerable (Full Name)
—–Archdeacon of (diocese)

Letter salutation:
—–Dear Archdeacon:
—–Dear Archdeacon (Surname)

Spelling out ‘the Venerable (Full Name)’ is always preferred. But when space is an issue ‘the Ven. (Full Name)’ can be used.
