This day 30 years ago, on June 14 1992, our Bishop, the Rt Rev George Davison was ordained at a service in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh.
His 30-year anniversary was marked by Connor staff by a surprise afternoon tea, kindly provided by Bishop’s wife Nadine, at lunchtime on Tuesday.
A native of south Belfast, Bishop George studied Theology at St Andrew’s University, Scotland; Oak Hill College, London and the Church of Ireland Theological College, Dublin.
He served his curacy in St Mark’s Parish, Portadown, and in 1995 was appointed rector of the Parish of Kinawley and Holy Trinity, Derrylin, Co Fermanagh, in the Diocese of Kilmore, where he remained until his institution as rector of Carrickfergus in June 2009. In Kilmore, Bishop Geoerge was Diocesan Director of Ordinands, and Archdeacon of Kilmore.
He is a former Honorary Secretary of the Church of Ireland’s General Synod and he and Nadine have two grown up children, Erin and James.
Congratulations Bishop on your 30-year anniversary.
