The Revd Dr Canon Sandra Millar becomes a Residentiary Canon

We are delighted to share that The Revd Dr Canon Sandra Millar is to become a Residentiary Canon of Gloucester Cathedral

Sandra, Director of Mission and Ministry in the Diocese of Gloucester, will be Collated and Installed as a Residentiary Canon during Evensong on Sunday 5 March at 3pm. All are warmly welcome to attend this service.

Canon Sandra said:

“It will soon be 16 years since I first attended a service in Gloucester Cathedral. And although my ministry  has changed shape over those years the presence of the Cathedral has been a constant. It is now humbling to take on a new role as a Residentiary Canon where I will be more involved in supporting and shaping the work of the Cathedral as part of the team that leads worship as well as joining in with the work of Cathedral Chapter.

As Diocesan Director of Mission and Ministry, I am aware of the role the Cathedral plays in witnessing to the presence of God to  thousands of visitors and worshippers.  I am looking forward  to getting to know more of the cathedral story in all its variety as it has unfolded for centuries and continues to unfold each day.”
