His Holiness Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Ralph Heskett to be the 3rd Bishop of Hallam. Bishop Heskett is currently Bishop of Gibraltar; I am sure you will join with me in welcoming him to our diocese and the Mass at Padley Chapel (see below) will be offered for his intentions. I have met Bishop Heskett albeit briefly but I hope to have a formal meeting with him in due course following his enthronement.
I would also like to thanks Bishop Rawsthorne for his generosity and support during his time in Hallam. We wish him a long and comfortable retirement.
Please do support our Masses; our Priests are already very busy and give up their time so generously to ensure the provision of the traditional Mass. We need to show them our support too.
