Our Rector Rev Stephen Hazlett B.Th. Dip. Hist was duly installed by the Bishop of Glasgow & Galloway Rt. Rev. Kevin Person & the Provost Very Rev Kevin Holdsworth in St. Mary’s Cathedral Glasgow on Sunday 27th February at Sung Evensong.
Worship was led by the magnificent cathedral choir and the Asst Provost, and a number of our church members and fellow diocesan clergy were in attendance. Stephen has always accepted this honour on behalf of the Galloway region, where he still pastors five churches, and of which he was Chair until recently.
A lovely reception was given by St. Mary’s church including a cake specially baked by Pene Richmond, and a few months prior to this a reception was held in glorious sunshine in the garden of Bob Reddaway, the Greyfriars Property Convenor, on behalf of the Kirkcudbright congregation congratulating Stephen on his new appointment. Stephen is very touched by all the cards and messages of good will from so many.
The diocese and cathedral are working on the video that was made of the event which we will supply when programmed on the cathedral YouTube channel.
