Revd. Ali Calvin installed as Prebendary of Annagh

The Revd. Alison Calvin was installed as Prebendary of Annagh at an evening service on Advent Sunday 3rd December in St Fethlimidh’s Cathedral, Kilmore. It was a beautiful service with the promise of advent running through all the hymns and readings. Canon Ali said it was ‘a reminder of what a privilege it is to serve God and his people while we eagerly await and look forward to his return’.

After the service there was a reception in the Kilmore Parish Hall at which Canon Ali was warmly welcomed to the cathedral chapter. The people of Killeshandra marked the occasion by presenting Canon Ali with flowers and a beautiful engraved lamp – a symbol of the light in the darkness.
