Welcoming the Bishop-Elect

Yesterday the Cathedral was pleased to welcome our Bishop-elect, Fr Michael Campbell OSA. He stayed in Cathedral House last night - his first visit to the Diocese since the announcement was made on Tuesday. It was an early chance for him to meet with Bishop Patrick, and to begin to make arrangements for his ordination.

Bishop Patrick and his successor posed for a few photographs in and around the Cathedral. There has been a fair amount of interest in the appointment, both from local press (here and in London) and the national Catholic newspapers.

Strolling in the garden on a bright but breezy day... no doubt this is one of the first of many conversations to take place over the months ahead!
