A New Bishop!

Announced today, a new bishop for the Diocese of Lancaster. Fr Michael Campbell OSA (seen here with the Cardinal), known to many in the diocese from his years in Carlisle, has been appointed coadjutor with right of succession. Bishop-elect Campbell will work alongside Bishop O'Donoghue for a little over a year before the present Bishop retires in 2009. The Cathedral will have the great pleasure of welcoming Fr Michael - he will be ordained here, probably sometime during the next few weeks. More details to follow in the coming days.
