Installation of the Dean of the Cathedral


On Saturday, March 25, 2006, DeLiza Spangler was installed as the new dean of St. Paul's Cathedral.

Here are some photographs from that joyous occasion. After a solemn procession, the new dean was introduced to the congregation by Bishop Garrison. After the readings, Bishop Lee, the retire bishop of Western Michigan and Dean Spangler's former bishop gave the sermon.

After the sermon, the actual installation of the Dean-elect took place. The dean was presented with the various signs of her office including the blessing of water, and then the bishop presented the new dean to the congregation. After the kiss of peace, the service concluded with the Eucharist.



And after the installation, we had a reception in the cathedral's Walker Room. It was truly a joyful occasion.
