Bishop of Lancaster Appointed

Canon Paul Swarbrick , a priest of the Lancaster Diocese, has been named as the next Bishop of Lancaster.  Canon Swarbrick (59) trained for the priesthood at Ushaw College, and was ordained to the priesthood in 1982.  He has served in various parishes in the Lancaster Diocese as well as spending a spell in Zambia.

It will be of particular interest to readers of this blog that Fr Swarbrick has, in the past, served at both the churches in Preston now run by the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.  On his return from Africa, he was briefly Assistant Priest at English Martyrs.  Later he was Parish Priest of the Sacred Heart Church, a parish that included St Walburge's Church.  In fact, an article in the Lancaster Evening Press announcing Canon Swarbrick's appointment has a picture of him inside St Walburge's Church.
