The licensing of the Reverend Canon Peter Moger as priest in charge of St Peter’s Episcopal Church Stornoway and St Moluag’s Eoropaidh takes place at St Peter’s today (Friday 1 November 2019).
The service is to be led by the Right Reverend Kevin Pearson, Bishop of Argyll and the Isles and the licence read by the Synod Clerk, the Reverend Canon Simon MacKenzie.
Following the service a reception is set for the Cabarfeidh Hotel.
Peter has come to Lewis from York Minster where, since 2010, he has been Canon Residentiary and Precentor, holding responsibility for the cathedral’s worship and music.
Prior to that, he served in the Church of England in parish ministry at Whitby and in Godmanchester, as Precentor of Ely Cathedral, and as Secretary of the Liturgical Commission.
Peter is married to Heather, a musician and teacher who specialises in work with pre-school children using shared music-making as a means of personal formation and building community.
In early November she will join the Full Circle creative arts team at An Lanntair.
Heather and Peter have two married adult sons, Thomas and David, and are excited to have recently become grandparents to Micah Oliver.
