In February 2009, after eight years as Priest in Charge at Emmanuel Church - Pokfulam, the Rev. Matthew Vernon took up his new post as Residentiary Canon Pastor of St. Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St. Edmunds. The role of Canon Pastor is to have pastoral care of the Cathedral congregation and community.
Matt's collation and installation as Canon Pastor took place at Evensong at St. Edmundsbury Cathedral on Sunday 8th February 2009 at 3.30pm (11.30pm Hong Kong time). Mary Haigh who attended sent us these photographs. Click here to see the St. Edmundsbury Cathedral service sheet. And here is the report of Matt's installation that appeared in the Bury Free Press.
