The Diocesan Director of Training Collated as Canon



At the Pro-Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Brussels, during the Chrism Eucharist on Tuesday 3 April, the Revd Canon Ulla Monberg, the Diocesan Director of Training, was formally collated into her stall of St Augustine of Canterbury by the Chancellor of the Pro-Cathedral, the Revd Canon Dr Robert Innes. The Canons form the Cathedral Chapter of the Diocese and commit themselves to supporting the Bishop by prayer and counsel. Canon Monberg is pictured above seated in her stall next to the Archdeacon of Germany and Northern Europe, the Venerable Jonathan LLoyd (whose stall is St Henry of Finland).


The Cathedral Chapter prayer:
Eternal God and Father,whose Son at supper prayed that his disciples might be oneas he is one with you:draw us closer to him,that, in common love and obedience to you,we may be united to one anotherin the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,so that the world may believe that he is Lord, to your eternal glory.we ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
