The Revd Rosemary Morton, Succentor of St Paul’s

The Chapter has announced that The Reverend Rosemary Morton, Succentor of St Paul’s, will be moving on from her role here in December after seven years in post.

We are very grateful indeed to Rosemary for all she has done while working at the Cathedral: she has been a vital member of the Liturgy Department, planning and overseeing numerous special and regular services and having a keen eye for our musical life. She has engaged pastorally with the choristers, the choir and the wider school, and managed our programme of visiting choirs, while playing a full role in leading worship and preaching. While working here Rosemary has also completed an MA in Liturgy with a focus on hymnody, and has continued to develop her experience and interests including supporting the Royal School of Church Music in the Diocese of London and in being Chaplain to the Chartered Accountants' Livery Company. 

Rosemary was a curate in the Diocese of Chelmsford before coming to St Paul's. Before following the path to ordination she enjoyed a career as a professional musician, a career she has continued to pursue throughout her ministry. She will be pursuing further directions in ministry, academic research, and music.

The Very Reverend David Ison, the Dean of St Paul’s says “Rosemary has been an integral member of the ministry team at St Paul's and has contributed a great deal to its life over the last seven years, and especially to the experience and welcome of worshippers coming to the Cathedral. There has not been a lot of scope for her to show her expertise on the bassoon at St Paul's, but we will miss her beautiful singing voice and her considerable commitment and expertise. Our prayers and good wishes are with her for all that the future brings.” 

The Reverend Rosemary Morton, Succentor, says "I have, for seven years, enjoyed a fruitful and joyful ministry here at St Paul's. I am grateful for the opportunities afforded to me, for the ways in which I have been able to contribute to the life of the Cathedral, and for the friendship of colleagues. I will carry with me many treasured memories, and very much look forward to the opportunities and challenges which lie ahead."
