Retiring dean to stay at cathedral until successor arrives.

THE Dean of Liverpool, the Rt Rev Rupert Hoare, who will leave the Anglican cathedral on January 31, 2007 will be sorely missed, said diocese spokesman David Johnston yesterday. Mr Hoare, 66, will remain until a successor is found.

In the Liverpool Cathedral newsletter, Mr Hoare underlines the Church's role in next year's 800th anniversary of the granting of the Charter to the City of Liverpool, the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in Great Britain, and Capital of Culture year. Mr Johnston said: "Bishop Rupert has done a fine job at the cathedral, drawing together many different groups from the city, the community and even internationally.

He added: "All who know him will wish him and his wife Gesine every blessing in their well-earned retirement."
