ST Paul’s Anglican Cathedral has appointed a new Dean, to be sworn in next month.
Archdeacon Elizabeth Dyke, from the Diocese of Canberra-Goulburn, will make the move from Canberra to Bendigo after serving in roles including the Rector of Queanbeyan and Archdeacon of Queanbeyan, Monaro and Alpine.
She was ordained in 1994 in the Diocese of Oxford in the United Kingdom, where she has “extensive experience in ministry”.
In an announcement to the congregation earlier this month, Bishop of Bendigo Matt Brain said
“Elizabeth will bring many gifts to the diocese and the ministry and the cathedral, particularly her understanding of the breadth of Anglican expressions of life and worship, and skill in mentoring and growing the ministry capacity of others,” he said.
“I am looking forward to seeing the life and ministry of the cathedral parish flourish under her care, and welcoming Elizabeth as a member of the diocesan leadership team.”
Elizabeth Dyke will replace outgoing Dean John Roundhill, who accepted a position as a bishop in the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane.
She will be installed as Dean on May 26.
