A new Dean for Newcastle
The Cathedral Chapter has been meeting for some time to discern whether there is a priest well known to the Cathedral community with the gifts and talents to be called to minister as Dean of Newcastle.
The Chapter has elected the Reverend Canon Stephen Williams. He will commence ministry among us at 6pm on Sunday 23rd June – the Eve of the Feast of St John the Baptist.
Canon Williams, currently the Rector of Merewether, is the Stretch Canon and has served on the Chapter, Council, and Board of the Cathedral as well as other Diocesan bodies. He is married to Sue.
The Reverend David Cole will continue in ministry at the Cathedral following the installation of the new Dean. Dr Cole has accepted appointment as an Honorary Minor Canon and will be known as the Canon Liturgist.
