Bishop Richard

On Thursday May 28th, the Golden Jubilee of our diocese, our Bishop, Richard was installed in Arundel Cathedral.

O God, our ever-loving Father, you make visible throughout the world the one, holy, catholic, and Apostolic Church. Grant that your people in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton, united with their bishop, Richard, through the Gospel and the Eucharist, may faithfully reflect the universal Church and grow in fidelity and witness to Jesus, your Son, who is Lord for ever and ever.
