The Rev Canon Cedric Blakey has been appointed to become the new Vice-Provost of St Mary’s, Cathedral.
Cedric will take up his post at the beginning of December and will be coming to Glasgow from the city of Derby where he has been part of the team at Derby Cathedral and a Minister in Secular Employment, working as an Emergency Planning Officer with Derbyshire County Council.
On announcing the new appointment, the Provost, the Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth said, “I am delighted to announce this appointment. I want to thank all those members of the congregation who have helped to make this come about, particularly through those who responded so positively to the increased giving appeal earlier this year. My thanks also go to Vestry members who have given advice and support throughout the process and especially to those
who helped with interviewing. Thanks are also due to the Bishop and the Diocese for considerable support, including particularly the provision of a Diocesan house in Scotstoun where Cedric will live.
Cedric has sent a message to members of the congregation, and introduces himself in his own words here.
