I went to Ripon Cathedral on Sunday to support my vicar being installed as an Honorary Canon.

The installation was carried out during Choral Evensong, which is a very beautiful service, especially with the acoustics of the cathedral. It was lovely to see his parishioners out in force – It felt like every church family must have been represented in one way or another (although I know some couldn’t make it)

It was great to see him honoured in this way, both in the position itself, but also through the words said during the service.
