|Canon Kelham, Dean Paddock, Fr Ford|
On Wednesday 8 June a new canon joined the chapter of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Gibraltar. The Revd Canon Adele Kelham, Chaplain of Christ Church, Lausanne, and soon to be the acting Archdeacon of Switzerland, was installed in the Stall of Our Lady of Europe during Solemn Choral Evensong.
The service was sung by the Sub Dean, Fr Peter Ford OGS, Port Chaplain of Gibraltar, and the installation was done by the Dean of Gibraltar who brought personal greetings from the Canons of the Cathedral Chapter throughout Europe, with greetings from canons in the See Cathedral of Gibraltar, and the pro cathedrals of Malta and Brussels.
The Dean and Canon Kelham were delighted to have in the congregation the Custodian of the Roman Catholic Shrine of Our Lady of Europe in Gibraltar, representing the Roman Catholic Church. The Swiss Consul in Gibraltar also sent greetings and assurance of prayers. The service concluded with the solemn recitation of the Angelus in the Chapel of the Annunciation, where there is a statue of Our Lady of Europe.
Then, in true Gibraltarian style, there was a celebration banquet!
