New Dean Appointed to Melbourne Cathedral
Very Reverend Gerard Dowling wrote in the Mass sheet of 6 October 2002 that Archbishop Hart had announced that Very Reverend Les Tomlinson would replace him as dean of the cathedral on 5 January 2003.
I brought a case against Very Reverend Gerard Dowling in 2000 about the issue of Instituted Readers not reading at the cathedral.
In the Mass sheet he wrote that he was stunned to offered the position of dean by Archbishop George Pell in Easter 1999. He asked for a week to consider the offer and accepted it. He was appointed for three years, which expired in June 2002.
