Rev. Kevin Borthwick has been appointed as the new Rector of the Anglican Parish of Prince William, Dumfries, Queensbury and Southampton by Most. Rev. Claude Miller, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Fredericton and Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada.

The appointment, which takes effect June 15, was announced Sunday in both Borthwick's new parish and in the Parish of St. Philips, Moncton, where Borthwick has served as priest and rector since 1994. It was subsequently announced in the diocesan e-news.

Borthwick replaces Rev. Canon Elaine Hamilton, who served as Rector of the Anglican Parish of Prince William, Dumfries, Queensbury and Southampton from 1995 until last year.

Retired priest Rev. Canon Neville Cheeseman, of Fredericton, will continue his interim ministry in the Parish of Prince William, Dumfries, Queensbury and Southampton until Borthwick's arrival.

Borthwick, who celebrates the 25th anniversary of his ordination this summer, has spent his entire ordained ministry in his native province. Educated at local public schools in Charlotte County, he then studied at the University of King's College in Halifax and Trinity College in Toronto prior to his ordination in 1985 by Most Rev. Harold Nutter. He served in the Anglican Parish of Ludlow and Blissfield for the first decade of his ordained ministry.
