Yes, but may be asked by the bishop to stay on in some capacity. We have a shortage of priests in our diocese and there are a number of priests who are technically retired but still serve as pastors and associate pastors.

Some people see this as simply a job. Then the regular 'worldly' retirement rules would apply, I suppose.

But if you're sharing my opinion that such a position should be fulfilled and pursuit as explained in Ephesians 4:11 then verse 13 would be your answer.

To put in a simple way: it's a life long contract :) Done actively or even less-active (the elderly). You are always on duty.

There is no specific age for a priest to retire. When the priest begins to deteriorate and is no longer able to fulfill his duties, he puts in a request to his local bishop, asking to retire.
