Katherine Prior joined Chapter as a Lay Member in September 2018. She says: "I’m an historian with a background in the heritage industry and museum curation, and I also work part-time at Church House in Hove as the Diocesan Fundraising Adviser. I was recruited to Chapter in part because of my hands-on fundraising experience; for the last six years I’ve raised funds for original fabric repair of my parish church in Brighton. I’m also interested in communication, marketing and social media and, having previously served on the Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) for two years, one of my goals on Chapter is to strengthen the ties between our parish churches and the Cathedral. I feel fortunate to have joined Chapter at a time of such growth and vision in the Cathedral’s life and have really appreciated the warm welcome extended to me by my fellow Chapter members. When I’m not attending meetings in Chichester or travelling around the churches of the Diocese, I live in Hove with my partner and a badly behaved Scottish Terrier called Magnus."
