Thank you to those who prayed in church at the Holy Hour last Sunday, the day before Bishop Paul’s ordination. Thank you to the four parishioners who represented our two churches at the Episcopal Ordination last Monday in Lancaster Cathedral. It was a wonderful day for our Diocese of Lancaster.
I have written to Bishop Paul to assure him of our encouragement, support and constant prayers. I have also written to Bishop Camp- bell to wish him a happy and fruitful retirement.
A prayer card has been made ready for distribution within all the parishes of our Diocese following the Ordination and Installation of Bishop Paul Swarbrick. These are available in the narthex and some have also been brought to Alston for parishioners at St Wulstan’s. Fr John
