The Bishop said, that perhaps because of all the challenges, this year’s confirmations were among the most moving of his twenty-two years as bishop.

Canon Elaine Murray said:

As the last group in the diocese to be confirmed after the long COVID-19 wait, the joyful group took the biblical phrase ‘the last shall be first’ to heart!
