The Revd Dr Josephine Houghton's Installation
We will be welcoming Revd Dr Josephine Houghton to the cathedral in a special service. Josephine will be installed as Canon Precentor by Bishop David.
Josephine was formed for the priesthood at St Stephen’s House, Oxford, and served her title in the Handsworth Group of Churches before moving to be Priest-in-Charge then Vicar of the Ascension, Stirchley. Since 2016 she has worked in the office of the Bishop of Birmingham including two periods serving as Interim Chaplain to the Bishop, and alongside this has also worked for the Diocese of Coventry supporting clergy learning and development.
Prior to ordination, Josephine completed a doctorate in medieval literature at the University of Birmingham and also served as a pastoral assistant in the Parish of Kings Norton. She retains an interest in texts and manuscripts, and has recently completed a course in archive management.
Please hold Josephine and her family in your prayers as they prepare for this new role.
All are welcome to celebrate this special installation.
