Bishop Dorrien consecrated
The new Bishop of St Davids, Dorrien Davies, has been consecrated at a service in St Deiniol's Cathedral, Bangor, the seat of the Archbishop of Wales.
The service was attended by a large number of clergy, family and friends. The service was also live-streamed online.
Bishops from the other Anglican churches in the UK - the Church of England, the Church of Ireland and the Scottish Episcopal Church – also attended.
Next weekend, Bishop Dorrien will be enthroned Bishop of St Davids at St Davids Cathedral. He will be installed in the Bishop’s chair and also welcomed by representatives from across St Davids Diocese.
“To be elected the 130th Bishop of St Davids is an honour and a challenge, Bishop Dorrien said. " I look forward to the future, thankful for the prayers, help and support of a great many people. However, the reassurance of God’s guiding love and grace is with me, with hope and joy. I ask for people’s continual prayer as I begin this new chapter in my ministry.”
In his address, Archbishop Andrew urged Bishop Dorrien to craft “an extravagant love” for Jesus, for the Church and for the world.
“Our task is to capture the imagination of our church and nation afresh," he said.
