The Most Rev Mark Strange, Bishop of Moray, Ross and Caithness in his role as Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church has appointed the Rev Canon Mel Langille as his Chaplain. Canon Mel, who is originally from Nova Scotia, has been a priest in the Diocese of Moray, Ross and Caithness since 2003. He has served as Synod Clerk of the Diocese and has also served on General Synod and Provincial Committees.
The Primus says “Canon Mel has a love for the liturgy of the Church and finding ways of using that liturgy to inspire and encourage others in their worship, he is also very good at telling the Bishop when to stand and when to sit.”
The role of Chaplain to the Primus requires providing support to the Primus during various services of worship including consecrations and the General Synod Eucharist .
