New Archdeacons installed for Elphin and Ardagh

On Sunday, January 9th, the Venerable Patrick Bamber and the Venerable Hazel Hicks were installed as Archdeacons of Elphin and Ardagh respectively at a service held in the Cathedral Church of St. Mary the Virgin and John the Baptist.

  Canon Linda Frost, (South Leitrim Group of Parishes), Canon Andrew Ison and Canon Christian Snell were also installed as Prebendaries of the Cathedral at the same service.

  The service also served as an opportunity to mark the achievements of our Ordained Local Ministers as they received their Certificates in Theology validated by Queens’ University Belfast. The Diocese congratulated Rev. Albert Dawson, Rev. Stephen Frost, Rev. Adam Norris, and Rev. Edmund Smyth, on the completion of their Ordained Local Ministry studies and is enormously grateful for all they bring to the Diocese.
