To assist the bishop with pastoral care and administration, dioceses are divided into smaller regional groupings known as Archdeaconries and Regional Deaneries, under the leadership of an Archdeacon and Regional Dean, respectively. In the Diocese of New Westminster, there are six Archdeaconries and eleven Regional Deaneries.
