Bishop Michael Campbell OSA

Newly-ordained, Bishop Michael Campbell is the first Augustinian Bishop in England since the reformation. Two Cardinals were amongst those who came to witness this historic event. Pictured above with Bishop Michael are Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor (Archbishop of Westminster) and Cardinal Keith O'Brien (Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh).

Thirty other bishops attended, and can be seen with their mitres on the sanctuary in the above picture.

Every inch of the Cathedral was filled, and a small number even gathered outside to see the procession going in and coming out. These photos are just a few of those taken; many more will appear here over the coming days, so keep an eye on this space!
