On June 4 at 4:00 p.m., the diocese will honor all canons named by Bishop Stokes in 2020–2022 with a special evensong service at Trinity Cathedral. The choir for the service will be made up of alumni from the NJ Choir Camp.
Each year, the bishop names honorary canons of the cathedral, to recognize clergy and lay people for distinctive service to the diocese or the cathedral. The installation service has not been held in the past two years because of covid restrictions.
