Wear cler­gy­man ap­pointed as new Queen’s Chap­lain

Sunderland Echo - - News -

A Wear­side cler­gy­man has been ap­pointed as the Queen’s Chap­lain.

The Rev Canon David Glover, who is Rec­tor of Holy Trin­ity Wash­ing­ton in the Dio­cese of Durham, ad­mit­ted he was shocked but hon­oured to be given the pres­ti­gious role.

He said: “It came as a com­plete sur­prise, and although it is mainly an hon­orary ti­tle, I will be ex­pected to preach once a year at the Chapel Royal in St James’ as well as at­tend­ing the gar­den party. Other than that, I be­lieve the du­ties are quite light.”

The Rt Rev Paul But­ler, Bishop of Durham, said he was “de­lighted” by the ap­point­ment.

He added: “This is ex­cel­lent news for David and for the whole com­mu­nity of Holy Trin­ity in Wash­ing- ton, where he con­tin­ues to serve, as well as the Dio­cese of Durham. David is a highly re­spected and dis­tin­guished par­ish priest and area dean of Ch­ester-le-Street whose abil­i­ties have been rightly recog­nised.”
