Charles John Klyberg (29 July 1931 – 17 January 2020) was a British Roman Catholic priest and former Anglican bishop. From 1985 to 1996, he was the Bishop of Fulham in the Church of England.[1] He studied at Lincoln Theological College, a Church of England theological college.

In 1994, the gay rights campaign group OutRage! named Klyberg as one of ten closeted homosexual bishops in the Church of England.[2]

In 1996, after retiring from Anglican ministry, Klyberg was received into the Roman Catholic Church.[3] He later became a priest. He was made a Prelate of Honour by Pope John Paul II.[4]

Klyberg died on 17 January 2020 in London at the age of 88.[5]
