York Minster has made history in recent years with a number of important appointments for the Church of England.
In 2015, York Minster held the Consecration of Rev. Libby Lane as she became the Church of England’s first ever female Bishop.
Ten years before in 2005, Dr John Sentamu was appointed Archbishop of York, the first person from a black or minority ethnic group to be made an Archbishop in the Church of England.
In addition, York Minster’s current Dean the Very Reverend Vivienne Faull is the first woman to hold the position of Dean of York. She was appointed to the role in 2012.
