Bishop made Honorary Canon of Exeter Cathedral

Bishop Mark alongside local Methodist leader, Rev Graham Thompson, was delighted to be installed as an Honorary Canon of Exeter Cathedral on Sunday, 18th September. The Installation took place within the context of Choral Evensong, ,beautifully sung by the men and boys of the Cathedral choir. As Evensong drew to a close, Bishop Mark and Rev Thompson were presented to Bishop Robert who read the Letter of Appointment and commended them to the Dean for Installation at Ecumenical canons of St Edward. Bishop Mark was installed in the stall of Pope St Leo the Great and Rev Graham in the stall of Martin Luther. Occasions like this are an important reminder of our ecumenical commitment and the long journey we have already made together.

Bishop Mark was thrilled to be supported by local priests, religious and many from our local parishes in Exeter.
