Life at St Katharine’s
On 21st October 2019, a beautiful service of installation and licencing of the new Master, The Venerable Roger M H Preece, took place, led by The Bishop of London, Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE at St. Anne’s Limehouse and then at The Royal Foundation of St. Katharine.
The procession took everyone out of St. Anne’s Church in Limehouse and along the basin to the chapel. The whole group stopped at the yurt cafe in the precinct as the new Master said a few words and was symbolically gifted seeds and gardening implements from the community gardening group.
