Announcement of New Canons

Bishop Geoffrey has today announced the appointment of 5 new canons of the Cathedral Chapter of the Diocese: The Reverend Ulla Monberg, Director of Training; the Reverend Christopher Jage-Bowler, Chaplain of George's, Berlin, Germany; the Reverend Ian Hutchinson Cervantes, Chaplain of St George's, Madrid, Spain; the Reverend John Wilkinson, Assistant Chaplain of the Anglican Church of Fontainebleau, France, and the Reverend Trevor Whitfield, Chaplain of the Holy Trinity, Maisons-Laffitte, France

The main function of the canons of the diocese is to support the bishop by prayer and counsel. They are traditionally assigned a stall in one of our three cathedrals. The new canons are assigned as follows (pictured below, clockwise):

Canon Monberg to St Augustine of Canterbury in the Pro-Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Brussels
Canon Jage-Bowler to St Ignatius of Antioch in the Pro-Cathedral of the St Paul, Valletta
Canon Hutchinson-Cervantes to St James in the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Gibraltar
Canon Wilkinson to St Silas in the Pro-Cathedral of St Paul, Valletta



And Canon Whitfield to St Paul the Apostle in the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity Gibraltar:



Every blessing to our 5 new canons.
