Editor's Viewpoint: Farewell Dean
The Dean of Belfast, the Very Reverend Dr Houston McKelvey is to retire next April and he will be missed by many. As the Black Santa, his annual sit-outs raised enormous sums for charity and he also changed the skyline by backing the controversial Spire of Hope on St Anne's Cathedral.
No doubt there will be another Black Santa when the Dean is replaced. In the meantime, Dean McKelvey has a few months left in one of the most challenging posts in church life. He has served the Cathedral and city so well.
