From the Interim Bishop: The Most Revd Mark Strange

6th January 2020

To the people of the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway:

Can I firstly thank you all for the prayers and kind words offered to Jane and our family during the past four weeks. We were able to hold my Father in Law’s funeral on the Feast of the Epiphany in his home town of Padiham.

I wish to inform the Diocese that there will be a meeting of the Episcopal Synod on Saturday 18th January at twelve noon. The meeting will be in the Cathedral and will be constituted by the Celebration of the Eucharist. All are welcome to attend as observers, the main business will be the Election of the Bishop of Glasgow and Galloway by the College of Bishops.

Please continue to pray for the Diocese and the College of Bishops at this time. I would also wish to record my thanks to the many people who have offered suggestions, support and in some cases themselves into this process; you have been a joy to minister with.

The Most Revd Mark Strange
