New Canons Appointed (posted 9 August 2015)

< Older | Newer >

Announcement of the Appointments of Honorary Canons

Chichester Cathedral
Chichester Cathedral

The Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner, has appointed six new Honorary Canons of Chichester Cathedral:

The Revd Alison Bowman to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Bury
The Revd Archie Coates to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Hampstead
The Revd Mark Gilbert to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Highleigh
The Revd Phil Moon to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Sidelsham
The Revd Tim Peskett to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Somerly
The Revd Ann Waizenecker to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Wisborough

The title "Canon" is usually offered to a priest or lay person in recognition of particular service to the Diocese or wider church.  With these appointments, Bishop Martin has recognised the contribution each has made to the apostolic life of the Diocese.  The award is marked by a special service in the Cathedral Church of the Diocese.

Each of the new Canons will be designated a "stall" (or seat) in Chichester Cathedral and they will become members of the Greater Chapter of Chichester Cathedral which sometimes meets with the residentiary canons who work in the Cathedral every day.

Dr Warner said: "I am delighted to welcome those announced today as Canons of Chichester Cathedral.  Each of them has made a distinctive contribution to the life and work of the Diocese in a variety of ways and I hope that the wider Diocese will pray for them as we welcome them to this new aspect of their ministry."

The installations will take place at the Cathedral in the context of Evensong: On Saturday 19th September 2015 at 5.30pm, the Revds Phil Moon, Tim Peskett and Ann Waizenecker will be installed.  On Sunday 11th October 2015 at 3.30pm, the Revds Alison Bowman, Archie Coates and Mark Gilbert will be installed.

Members of their current churches will join their families and friends at the celebration which will be led by the Bishop.
