Bishop of Sheffield appoints three new honorary Canons

21st June 2014

Bishop Steven has appointed three new honorary Canons of Sheffield Cathedral, in recognition of their service in the diocese.

Each canon has their own ‘stall’ or seat in the cathedral which they take up for special services.  They also become part of the greater Chapter – working with the Dean and Residentiary Canons to ensure the smooth running of the Cathedral.

The appointments are as follows:

  • The Revd Mary Gregory: Rector at Church of the Good Shepherd, Kirk Sandall & Edenthorpe; Dean of Women’s Ministry; Diocesan Synod Representative; and member of Bishop’s Staff
  • The Revd Julie Upton: Team Rector at Sheffield Manor.
  • Peter Rainford: Reader and Worship Leader at St John, Kimberworth Park; member of Bishop’s Council; and Diocesan Synod Lay Representative.

Their names were announced in Sheffield Cathedral yesterday, Sunday 22 June, by the Dean, Peter Bradley.  A service of installation for the new Canons will take place later in the year.
