Lizzie is honoured to take up new role
THE Bishop of Worcester’s chaplain has pledged to uphold the statutes and customs of Worcester Cathedral in her new role.
Reverend Lizzie Shipp has been appointed a Minor Canon of the cathedral during a special service as part of Evensong.
The role is given to a priest who by virtue of their office is associated with the life and work of the cathedral, and as a result support its work and witness.
She said: “I am very honoured to have been made a Minor Canon of Worcester Cathedral. This new role affirms the spiritual and administrative links which are already a natural part of being Bishop John Inge’s chaplain, and I look forward to serving the cathedral in its mission and ministry within the Diocese of Worcester and beyond.”
The Dean of Worcester, Peter Atkinson said: “The duties of the Bishop’s chaplain require her to have frequent and close liaison with the chapter and staff of the cathedral, and becoming a Minor Canon appropriately recognises this relationship.
“Lizzie already plays a significant role in cathedral life and the chapter is pleased to be able to affirm this by appointing her as a Minor Canon.”
