The announcement means that they are able to use the title Canon and are allocated a stall in the choir at the Cathedral Church.

Dr Warner said today that the announcement was “in recognition of the contribution that they make to the apostolic life of the diocese. “

Those appointed are:

The Revd Mark Standen to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Fittleworth. It is an affirmation of many years of fruitful ministry in Angmering, his diligent ministry as Rural Dean and the generosity with which he served during the vacancy in the Chichester Archdeaconry.

Mark is vicar of St Margaret’s Angmering and Rural Dean of Arundel and Bognor

The Revd Nigel Mason to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Thorney. It is an affirmation of years of faithful parochial ministry in Rotherfield. In particular, this is recognition that the parishes that are some distance from the Cathedral in Chichester are no less part of the life of this Diocese and household of faith.

Nigel is the vicar of Rotherfield with Mark Cross in East Sussex.


The Revd Kathryn Windslow to take the Stall of the Prebendary of Seaford. It is an affirmation of her contribution to the wider life of the Diocese, especially as Rural Dean. It is also a way of affirming the importance and the quality of her ministry in Storrington.

Kathryn is vicar of St Mary, Storrington and Rural Dean of Storrington.

Revd Dr Keir Shreeves was also licensed into his role as Diocesan Director of Ordinands.
