Two new Church of Ireland Canons have been installed at Derry’s St Columb’s Cathedral.

Rev Harold Given, Rector of Tamlaghtfinlagan (Ballykelly) St Findluganus and Rev Mike Roemmele, Rector of Camus-Juxta-Bann (Macosquin) were ordained on March 16.

A spokesman for the diocese said “We congratulate both Harold and Mike for their faithful and imaginative ministry in their parishes and on their appointment.”

The new Canons were joined by their family, friends and parishioners who came to witness their installation. Canons are non-residential members of the Cathedral Chapter (the ruling body of the Cathedral) appointed by the Bishop as a mark of their contribution in ministry to the work of the Diocese.

The new Canons will continue their parish ministry.
