Heavy Artillery: the newest Canon

This came by email yesterday from Bishop Stanley Ntagali of the Diocese of Masindi-Kitara. I am honored.  Bishop Stanley is to be enthroned as the Archbishop of the Province of the Church of Uganda on December 16.  I am slated to attend the enthronement.  
Abp Bob Duncan will be preaching.
Dear David,

You will be glad to know that today during our sixth Diocesan synod- my very last one as the Diocesan Bishop, I announced you as the honorary canon of St. Matthew's Cathedral in Masindi-Kitara Diocese. Four other clergy and a number of Lay Christians were announced as new Canons of the cathedral. They will be installed in the Cathedral on the 18th November 2012. This will be just a week before the consecration of Canon George Kasangaki as our second Bishop and my successor.  I congratulate you and thank God for you becoming our newest honorary Canon. You will be installed in absentia.

Many thanks and blessings.

Bishop Stanley 


  1. Congratulations, Dave. A very nice way to acknowledge and celebrate your ministry.

  2. Congratulations. What a great honor. Do Canons come in different calibers?

  3. The image definitely fits the man.


  4. Congratulations, David. Very well deserved and appropriate!
