|Canons Kelham and Dimmick take their oaths|
The Cathedral Chapter of the Diocese has two new canons. On 27 April, the Revd Kenneth Dimmick, Priest-in-Charge of St Catherine's Stuttgart,and the Revd Adèle Kelham. Chaplain of Christ Church Lausanne, were "collated" during a Eucharist at a recent meeting of the Bishop's Staff in London. Canon Dimmick is also Area Dean of Germany and Canon Kelham who has been an Area Dean in Switzerland and Diocesan Advisor for Women's Ministty in the past is shortly to become the Archdeacon of Switzerland, so their wider ministry in the diocese is honoured by their canonries. The Very Revd Dr John Paddock, Dean of Gibraltar, received the formal mandate at that service to install the new canons in their stalls.
The canons of the diocese support the ministry of the bishop with prayer and counsel. As the occupant of the stall of St Andrew in the Chapter, I welcome the two new canon colleagues!
