On Sunday, October 22nd, we were privileged to have The Very Reverend Canon Richard Sewell and his spouse, JulieAnn, worship with us at the Cathedal. Dean Richard was our guest preacher, and the link to his sermon is below. They also both attended and spoke at our Diocesan Synod last week, having just arrived from Jerusalem.
