Endangered Anglican cathedrals prompt Church of England review

From RNS-

The future of England’s cathedrals — often described as the crown jewel of the nation’s architectural heritage — will be examined by a special Church of England working group following a series of disastrous financial crises for the churches.

The archbishops of Canterbury and York, Justin Welby and John Sentamu, ordered the review in the wake of crises that have included layoffs, debts, and the sale of assets. On Monday (April 10), the 12 members of  the group were announced, including its chair, Bishop of Stepney Adrian Newman, and Dean of York Vivienne Faull, who will serve as vice chair.

The group will study how cathedrals are governed, their accountability, and how decisions about finances are made.
