Confirmation of Bishop Mark…

…As Bishop of Chester

Canon Veronica at Chester Cathedral

As a Cathedral Canon, our Vicar was involved on 28 May 2020 in the election of Bishop Mark Tanner as our new Bishop of Chester. One of the few perks of her job! Today +Mark’s election has been formally confirmed by the new Archbishop of York, who charged +Mark with the task of (amongst other things) “challenging the status quo (whilst encouraging what works well) and championing the diocese’s work with young people”.

The ceremony can be watched on Youtube here.

Despite the fact that the Confirmation has been carried out via Zoom, the legal part of the process still seems firmly rooted in a previous century. No wonder the C of E is called the Established Church!
