SEASON OF PRAYER FOR BISHOP PHILIP
Canon Philip Mounstephen will be ordained and consecrated bishop at St Paul's Cathedral (11am, Friday 30th November - St Andrew's Day) and we very much look forward to welcoming him to the diocese in the new year, when he will be installed as 16th Bishop of Truro at Truro Cathedral.
We have prayed as individuals, in our local congregations, deaneries and as a diocese throughout the vacancy in see and appointments process. Our prayers continue now for Philip, Ruth and their family and for the diocese, as Philip prepares for both the service at St Paul's and the beginning of his ministry here in Cornwall.
On his appointment, Philip said: "I am absolutely delighted to have been called to lead the Diocese of Truro in mission and ministry. With my family roots in Cornwall Iam very well aware of what a rich Christian heritage we have. I rejoice in Cornwall's strong sense of identity and I look forward under God into leading us in what I hope and pray will be a fruitful and exciting future."
