Dean bids cathedral farewell

THE MAN who oversaw the refurbishment of the Chancel of the Cathedral of St Michael and All Angels presided over his last service on Sunday evening.

Dean Dr Frank Marshall officially bade farewell to the church he had officiated over for almost 11 years and to the priesthood of which he has been a part since he entered Codrington College in 1965.

And he was praised by every arm of the church, from the Mothers Union to the Sunday school, as he was showered with gifts as well.

Archbishop of the West Indies and Bishop of Barbados Dr John Holder, as he praised Marshall, said the most “terrible thing in life is ingratitude”.

“So this evening we are here to say thank you to Frank for his contribution to this parish and to other parishes in the diocese,” he told the audience, which included Marshall’s wife, children, grandchildren, siblings and other members of his family; high-ranking clergy of the Anglican Church, Governor of the Central Bank Dr DeLisle Worrell and friend Rev. Edward Gatherer. (HLE)
