The day after the installation of David Monteith as the new Dean of Leicester, 3 more members of the Cathedral clergy team were licensed at the Eucharist service for Pentecost Sunday. These posts will remain in place until May 2014, by which time the appointment of a new Canon Chancellor is likely to have been made.
Pete Hobson, formerly Director of St Martins House, has been seconded to the Cathedral Team as Acting Canon Missioner. He comes with masses of project experience and he will add considerably to our capacity and diversity, and will concentrate on Richard III, and Cathedral Gardens as well as assisting with the liturgical and preaching load. He will also maintain an involvement with the outreach work in the south wing of St Martins House.
Alison Adams who has recently retired as Chaplain at Glen Parva was licensed as Diocese and Cathedral Social Responsibility Enabler, working 4 days per week as a Non-Stipendiary Minister, primarily working with Pete on matters relating to Richard III.. Working with the City and County on Richard III will enable her to establish lots of networks for her longer term work in Social Responsibility.
Finally, Julie Ann Heath was formally licensed as Cathedral Chaplain, to remain in post until May 2014.
