New Auxiliary Bishops

The Holy Father Pope Francis has today appointed Mgr Timothy Menezes, Dean of St Chad's Cathedral, and Canon Richard Walker, Vicar General, to be new Auxiliary Bishops to serve our Archdiocese.

Archbishop Bernard said: “I am very grateful to the Holy Father, Pope Francis, for appointing Mgr Timothy Menezes and Canon Richard Walker as Auxiliary Bishops to serve the Archdiocese of Birmingham. “With their long experience of pastoral ministry, their contributions to priestly formation and their dedicated service as Vicars General I know that they will assist me and Bishop David Evans in caring for our clergy and in carrying out our diocesan vision and mission in the years ahead.  I ask the prayers of Our Lady and St Chad, St John Henry Newman and Blessed Dominic Barberi for our two bishops-elect as they prepare for their episcopal ordination in the coming weeks.” 

We pray for both of our new Bishops Elect as they prepare for their episcopal ordination. Mgr Timothy has been a good friend to our pilgrimage and parish for some years and from this Sunday there will be a card at the back of church to sign to pass on our best wishes and prayers
