News from the Bishops' Conference

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales has issued a press release at the end of the meeting which has taken place this week.

Archbishop Vincent Nichols was elected President of the Conference unanimously and by acclamation. The post which he formerly held as chair of the department for Catholic education and formation will now be filled by Bishop Malcolm McMahon. I will be able to congratulate Bishop McMahon personally as I will be assisting him as subdeacon at Pontifical High Mass next week at the chapel of the Knights of Malta at the hospital of St John and St Elizabeth

I was also delighted to hear that Fr Marcus Stock has been appointed as General Secretary to the Bishops' Conference.
