Local vicars become canons
Two North Norfolk vicars have been installed as Honorary Canons of Norwich Cathedral by the Bishop of Norwich the Rt rev Graham James.
The Rev Canon Derek Earis(left), 60, has been Vicar of North Walsham since 2002 and The Rev Canon David Court (right), 52, has been Vicar of Cromer since 2003 and was recently made Rural Dean of Repps.
Honorary Canons are given a stall in the Cathedral and become members of the wider Cathedral foundation.
They meet from time to time with the Dean and Chapter and help to reflect on the mission and ministry of the Cathedral.
It is an honorary title which is usually awarded to clergy who have given commendable service to their parishes but also to the wider diocese.
