Golden jubilee trio

02 November 2006

THREE DISTINGUISHED clergy are about to celebrate together the 50th anniversary of their ordination to the priesthood. Two are Bishops — the Rt Revd John Baker, formerly Bishop of Salisbury, and the Rt Revd Simon Burrows, formerly Bishop of Buckingham, who are both Assistant Bishops in the diocese — and the third is the Very Revd David Edwards, who was Dean of Norwich before becoming Provost of Southwark.
 All retired to Winchester; and it is in the Norman church of St Cross Hospital, just outside the city, that they will concelebrate on Sunday 25 September. Bishop Burrows will preach. Both Dr Edwards and Bishop Baker regularly assist at St Cross, and Dr Edwards is also an honorary chaplain in Winchester Cathedral. He tells me he has just completed what he intends to be his final book (he honestly can’t remember how many he has written), appropriately called A Positive Faith, to be published by Darton, Longman & Todd.
