The Revd Dr Victoria Johnson has been installed as the new Residentiary Canon at Ely Cathedral at the week-end. Vicky, who will be the first female Residentiary Canon in the Cathedral's history, came to Ely from the parish of St. Michael, Flixton in the Diocese of Manchester. Before training for the priesthood at Westcott House, Cambridge, Vicky gained a Doctorate in Biochemistry. She is also a tutor for the College of Preachers, a member of the Mission Theology Advisory Group and the Mission and Public Affairs Council of the Church of England.

The Service on Saturday was officiated by the Bishop of Ely, the Rt. Revd Stephen Conway and the Very Revd Mark Bonney, Dean of Ely, with support from her fellow Chapter colleagues at the Cathedral.

Outside her work, Vicky loves music, especially singing and has recently discovered the delights of opera. She also enjoys walking, real-ale, all things French and her dog, Percy.
