The abbreviation of titles is acceptable. In the Diocese of Perth it is preferred that the full title be used (as per above).
Examples of abbreviation are:
'Reverend', 'Right Reverend', 'Very Reverend', 'Most Reverend' and 'Venerable', whether abbreviated or not, should ALWAYS be preceded by the definite article (“The”). The form “Reverend Surname”, “The Reverend Surname” or “Reverend” should NEVER be used.
