Lay Canon appointment

In Judy’s case the appointment is in recognition of her work as Associate Warden of Licensed Lay Ministers in the Salisbury Diocese. A ceremony to install Judy in her new role – along with other new canons – will take place during Choral Evensong in Salisbury Cathedral on Tuesday 8th May at 5.30pm. Judy continues in her existing role as a Licensed Lay Minister in our benefice. She is also a foundation governor at St John’s Primary School in Tisbury.
