Announcement - From the Bishop of Ely

9th September 2011

The Bishop of Ely announces that the half-stipend post of Vicar of St Bene’t’s in Cambridge is to be linked with a new half-stipend post of Diocesan Director of Ordinands in the Diocese.

This follows a recent decision by the Bishop’s Council of a longer-term strategy, from 2012, to detach the vocations/ordination work in the Diocese from the other responsibilities of the Director of Ministry and Vocation. In due course, these other responsibilities will become part of the work of a new post of Director of Ministry and Training.

For the time being, however, Canon Vanessa Herrick and Canon Les Oglesby will continue to maintain their existing portfolios of work and to care for the people involved.
