Normally on Easter Day the Dean’s Annual Report would be published
In that report the Dean and others from the Cathedral community reflect on the past year. There is also included in it a digest of the finances from the Cathedral’s accounts.
This year it is obviously not possible to publish the report as a booklet but it is published online. The Dean has also recorded a message to accompany the report (see below).
The publication of the report and the accounts would normally be followed by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) at which the Dean and officers of the Chapter can be questioned about their reports. This is also the occasion when people are elected to the Cathedral’s governing bodies. The Bishop of Southwark has given permission to all the churches in the diocese, the Cathedral included, to hold their APCMs later in the year, when life has, we hope, returned to something of the ‘new normal’.
Look out for the date of that meeting and please, in the meantime, read the report here
