Direct, ordinarily, about cleric (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

rector

Here is my best explanation:

'cleric' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'direct ordinarily about' is the subsidiary indication.

'about' indicates a hidden word.

'rector' is hidden within 'direct ordinarily'.

(Other definitions for rector that I've seen before include "Vicar", "Cleric", "Clergyman", "Type of clergyman", "Head of some colleges", "Parson", "Parish clergyman", "Member of the clergy", "Minister of religion" and "Church official".)
