The Bishop of Exeter has today announced the appointment of Canon Dr Mike Williams as acting Dean of Exeter Cathedral. Dr Williams has been the chair of Cathedral Chapter, since the Dean, Dr Jonathan Draper, went on sabbatical in advance of his retirement.
Bishop Robert said the appointment was in recognition of the tireless work put in by Canon Mike over recent months to address difficulties and put the Cathedral on a stable financial footing.
He said: "We all owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude for all he has been doing, and continues to do, for the congregation and for visitors to the Cathedral."
The appointment process for a new Dean is now underway, and an announcement is expected in the autumn.
