Episcopal ordination anniversaries marked in Norwich

Bishop Alan Hopes has celebrated the 19th anniversary of his ordination as a bishop along with the Archbishop of Birmingham, the Most Rev Bernard Longley, who was marking the same milestone, at St John’s Cathedral in Norwich today (January 24).

Bishop Alan welcomed Archbishop Bernard to the Cathedral as they both celebrated the 19th anniversary of their joint episcopal ordination in Westminster Cathedral on January 24, 2003.

They served together as auxiliary bishops in Westminster until 2009, when Archbishop Bernard was named Archbishop of Birmingham. Bishop Alan was installed as Bishop of East Anglia in July 2013.

The duo concelebrated the morning parish Mass at St John’s Cathedral in Norwich.

You can watch the Mass on the St John’s YouTube channel here or below:
