Institution of Rev Canon Drew Sheridan

On Tuesday 14 June Christ Church was full to overflowing with Christ Church members, representatives of the local community, many friends, relatives and fellow priests who came along to welcome Drew to his new charge in Lanark. The Right Revd Dr Gregor Duncan, Bishop of Glasgow and Galloway, read the oaths and the Constitution of the Charge to Rev Canon Drew Sheridan before Drew signed the Constitution and Deed of Institution and  pledged to care for the community at Christ Church, Lanark and to share in ministry with them and with the community of Lanark. As the procession of clergy left the church at the end of the service they lined up on the footpath while the Bishop gave the final blessing.

Following a wonderful service, everyone retired to the church hall for refreshments and a slice of Doreen’s superb cake.
