HENRY LASCELLES JENNER (JUNE 6, 1820-SEPTEMBER 18, 1898)

Anglican Bishop of Dunedin, New Zealand

Henry Lascelles Jenner, born in Chislehurst, Kent, was the son of Sir Herbert Jenner-Fust (1778-1852), Dean of the Arches (an ecclesiastical judge at Canterbury).  Our saint, educated at Harrow and Cambridge (Trinity Hall), took Holy Orders in The Church of England in 1843.  He served five congregations through 1854, when he became the Vicar of Preston-next-Wingham.  Twelve years later our saint became the first Bishop of Dunedin, New Zealand.  He returned to Preston in 1870 and resigned as Bishop of Dunedin the following year.

Jenner, who had a longstanding interest in ancient hymns, plainsongs, and other matters liturgical, composed hymn tunes, such as Quam Dilecta.

Bishop Jenner took the corporate worship of God seriously.  May we do the same.
