Master appointed Honorary Canon of Ely Cathedral
The Revd Dr Jeremy Morris, Master of Trinity Hall, was formally installed as an Honorary Canon of Ely Cathedral during Evensong on Monday 25 February.
The honour is awarded to members of the clergy in recognition of their service to the Diocese of Ely and the wider church. They are appointed by the Bishop of Ely as non-residential members of the Cathedral Chapter.
The Master said: “I was surprised and honoured to be invited to become an Honorary Canon of Ely Cathedral. I’ve been in Cambridge on and off since 1990, so Ely definitely feels like my home cathedral!”
Before taking on the Mastership in 2014, Canon Morris held other notable posts in Cambridge as Dean of Chapel of King’s College, Vice-Principal of Westcott House and Dean of Trinity Hall. Outside Cambridge, he is Director of the Archbishop’s Examination in Theology, and was formerly Deputy Chair of the Faith and Order Commission of the Church of England. The Master still teaches students in the Faculty of Divinity.
The Revd Tom Buchanan, Monsignor Mark Langham and The Revd Alison Myers were also appointed Honorary Canons.
Commenting on these recent appointments, the Dean of Ely, The Very Revd Mark Bonney said: “We are delighted to have such notable and dedicated individuals join us as Honorary Canons of Ely Cathedral. Each and every one of them bring such a breadth of experience and knowledge to support the work of the Cathedral and within the Diocese.”
