– Church in Wales statement
The Archbishop of Wales has, with enormous sadness, accepted the resignation with immediate effect of the Very Rev Janet Henderson as Dean of Llandaff.
He has, in the meantime, asked the Archdeacon of Llandaff, the Venerable Peggy Jackson, as the senior member of the chapter, to have necessary oversight of the cathedral on his behalf, until a new dean is appointed.
The first woman dean of Llandaff Cathedral has resigned - just two months after being installed.
The Very Rev Janet Henderson became only the second woman dean in Wales' history when she took on the role in March.
But last night the Archbishop of Wales Dr Barry Morgan confirmed he had accepted her resignation with immediate effect.
The Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan has issued a Christmas message to the people of Wales.
In it, he encourages adults to 'regain a child’s sense of wonder' of the world in which we live.
The Archbishop, will preach at Llandaff Cathedral this evening and on Christmas Day.
