AFTER a 12-month wait, a new rector has finally been appointed to the Bicester benefice.

The Rev Verena Breed will lead the four churches – St Edburg’s in Bicester, St Laurence’s in Caversfield, St Mary’s in Launton and St Peter’s in Bucknell.

Mrs Breed will take up residence in Bicester with her husband and two teenage children over the summer.

St Edburg’s has been without a Rector since July last year when Canon Theresa Scott retired.

Presumably all the local Christians didn't leave the faith or defect to Catholicism, whilst patiently waiting for 12 months? Does beg the question as to whether we actually need vicars or churches when God is always there for Christians, anyway? Likewise, why do Catholics need to confess to a Priest, when God is omnipotent, all-knowing and always there for mankind?

Maybe nobody wanted to apply for a job whose title sounds so much like 'rectum'?
