|House of Clergy Chair Fr Tuomas Mäkipää (l) with Fr John Perris and Ms Cynthia D'Alimonte the (US) Episcopal Church Reps.|
As this was the start of a triennium, the Houses of Clergy and Laity met during the recent Synod to elect their chairs, who then become vice-presidents of the Synod. The Revd Tuomas Mäkipää, the Chaplain of St Nicholas Helsinki and Assistant Area Dean for Finland, was elected chair of the House of Clergy. Mr David Coulston, a parishioner in St Andrew’s Puerto Pollensa, Mallorca was elected chair of the House of Laity. Both are also members of General Synod from our Diocese.
Congratulations to them both.
