OPENING OF OUR HIGHLAND MISSION

Highland Mission

The first weekend of the Mission under the patronage of St Duthac and St Columba was an interesting one. It included (of course) a good deal of discussion, but also blessing a flock of sheep, as well as the house, seeing several ancient Pictish Christian carved slabs in situ, the remains of the cell of St Duthac and of course serving Great Vespers and the Holy Liturgy.

Ian and Stacey are very hospitable. Fr Christopher looks forward to returning and to building on a very good start. Thanks also for Duncan Neill's help, not least in serving as the choir.

HISTORIC FIRST JOINT MEETING OF THE CATHEDRAL AND THE DEANERY

Meeting

Since 1995 the Deanery and the Cathedral of St. George in London have constituted administratively separate entities within the same Archdiocese.  Although the Deanery and the Cathedral have always worked closely together, decision making has not until now been joint.  This has now all changed with the creation of an Archdiocese for the British Isles and Ireland.  Saturday 11th January saw the historic first joint meeting in London between the Deanery Clergy, the Deanery Trustees and representation from the Cathedral Board.  (Not all attendees had arroved by the time this photograph was taken).

DEANERY CLERGY CHAPTER IN MANCHESTER

Clergy Chapter

The deanery clergy met in the church of St. Aidan on Saturday 14th July.  They committted themselves to the humanitarian appeal of the Patriarchate for Syria and then approved a new process to consult in the Deanery in order to advise the bishop on the deployment of newly ordained clergy and the planting of new missions.  The provisions for this may be found on a new page here.
