Doctor's Orders - Bishop Joanna takes sick leave
Bishop Joanna is unwell and, on the advice of her doctor, will be away from work until the end of October..
A letter has been sent by senior diocesan staff to all clergy by way of explanation and detailing temporary arrangements during her absence.
It also refers to the recent controversary surrounding the Bishop's now-defunct Twitter account and subsequent correspondence between the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, Secretary of State for Wales Simon Hart, and the Church in Wales' senior Bishop, Andrew John.
The letter states: "Please be assured that the Bench of Bishops, supported by national and diocesan officers, are engaging with both Welsh and UK Governments to ensure that Bishop Joanna’s apology is heard and that steps are taken to restore damaged relationships."
