Change Tab name based on formula in cell D3 on each sheet

In every D3 cell I have a date, formatted such as "01-Jan-16." What I want is for the name of each tab to automatically be renamed by pulling this data. The dates in cells D3 are figured by pulling the date in the previous sheet and adding 7 to get the new date (I create a new sheet each week).

I would like some sort of code which always makes the tab name reflect whatever date I have in cell D3 on each page. Any ideas? Tried watching some vids and trying different codes but nothing is quite working. I'm a noob at this but it's very interesting/helpful so any help is most appreciated! Thanks.

Sub rename_tab()

Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Sheets

ws.Name = ws.Range("D3").Value


End Sub
