We’re delighted to install Christopher Caruso-Lynch, Tom Kryder-Reid, Hipólito Fernández Reina, and Mariann Scott as Canons of Christ Church Cathedral this Sunday, Nov. 21 at our 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. liturgies, with a festive reception in between the services. The title of “Canon” in a Cathedral church is not honorific, but rather it is a working title bestowed upon those who are the keepers of the Cathedral’s daily rhythm of life, that is, our prayers. With this ceremony on Sunday, Chris, Tom, Poli, and Mariann will publicly commit themselves to lead us in prayer, for ourselves, for our city and for our Diocese. A common life of prayer is our Cathedral’s primary vocation, and our prayers fuel and inspire all that we do in and through the rest of our ministry. We celebrate with our new Canons, and are grateful for their leadership, both of our spiritual life and our life of work and service.
—The Very Rev. Gray Lesesne, D.Min.
