Two new Canons have been installed in St Columb’s Church of Ireland Cathedral in Londonderry.

They were installed at a service in the Cathedral on Sunday, March 16.

The new canons are Rev Harold Given who is Rector of Tamlaghtfinlagan (Ballykelly) & St Findluganus as well as Rev Mike Roemmele, Rector of Camus-Juxta-Bann (Macosquin).

The new Canons were joined by their family, friends and parishioners who came to witness their installation. Canons are non-residential members of the Cathedral Chapter (the ruling body of the Cathedral) appointed by the Bishop as a mark of their contribution in ministry to the work of the Diocese. The new Canons will continue their parish ministry.

A spokesperson for the diocese praised the appointments: “We congratulate both Harold and Mike for their faithful and imaginative ministry in their parishes and on their appointment”.
