We will all gather for one service to celebrate the investiture of Archbishop Robert Duncan, D.D. as the Bishop in Residence of St. Peter’s Anglican Cathedral.
The Bishop holds spiritual oversight as chief Pastor for all the churches in his Diocese.
From the earliest days of the Church, the Bishop has delegated spiritual and canonical authority
to ministers who lead congregations.
Today the Diocesan Bishop invests a brother bishop with primary pastoral authority for St. Peter’s Anglican Cathedral. This investiture conforms to the Canons of the Gulf Atlantic Diocese, conveying
the authority normally exercised by the Dean (Rector) to the Bishop in Residence who is the interim
(Locum Tenens) between Deans.
