On Friday June the 8th the Cathedral was host to the joyful service to inaugurate the episcopal ministry of the Right Revd John Pritchard, the new Bishop of Oxford. The service, at which the Bishop was welcomed, enthroned, annointed, presented with his episcopal staff and dedicated for his ministry, was attended by leaders of the City and County, the Diocese, the University and the other churches. We welcome Bishop John and his family to their important new role. Read more from the Oxford Diocese Website,
