Bishop’s Chaplain: The Canon to the Ordinary usually functions as the Bishop’s chaplain at installation services, but on occasion (for example, when a close family member of the new Rector is a priest) others may serve in this role with the prior approval of the Bishop. Whenever possible, the chaplain should be seated next to the Bishop.
The Canon to the Ordinary: The Canon to the Ordinary, unless for some reason prevented from
attending, will read the letter of institution upon the request of the Bishop, whether serving as Chaplain or not.
Preacher: This is an opportunity to invite a colleague in ministry to preach, but please let Canon Howard know ahead of time who you’re inviting.
