New Canon Appointed

Bishop Kevin is pleased to announce the appointment of the Rev Stephen Hazlett, Rector of Greyfriars, Kirkcudbright and St Mary’s, Gatehouse of Fleet, as the newest canon of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Glasgow.

Stephen has served in the Diocese since 2016, in a journey of ordained ministry spanning over three decades from Portrush, Belfast, and Bushmills, through Sunderland, to Rotterdam.

Bishop Kevin said: “Canon Stephen’s appointment is an exciting development for both Galloway and the whole Diocese. He is handling three long-term vacancies in the region and helping the Diocese discern a new vision and pattern of ministry for these charges, alongside his own congregations. He will be a great addition to the Cathedral Chapter and his voice will be a valuable asset in the wider mission of our Diocese.”

Please pray for Stephen, his family, and the Diocese, as we follow God’s call for the future of God’s people in Glasgow and Galloway.

Details of the service of installation will follow.
