Dean William Morton and Bishop Ken Good

The Very Revd Dr William Morton, Dean of St Columb’s Cathedral in Londonderry has been appointed Deputy Lieutenant for the city of Londonderry with effect from 31 Oct 2014. This follows on from Canon Samuel McVeigh, Rector of Limavady being the first cleric to receive the accolade for the county in April 2014.

Deputy Lieutenants are appointed by the Lord–Lieutenant in recognition of significant public service.

Dean Morton responded to his appointment by saying he was both shocked and humbled to have received such an award, however he emphasised that he views it as a great honour, not only for for himself but also for St Columb’s Cathedral.

Bishop Good congratulated Dean Morton by saying “Dean Morton is well known and respected in the diocese of Derry and Raphoe and particularly in the city where he ministers. His enthusiasm for both city and Cathedral life is unswerving and I am delighted he has received this honour in recognition of his commitment to public life and service.”
