Bishop of Gloucester
As most of you will know, Bp Michael withdrew from his public ministry on Fri 1/8/14. It has since emerged on public news that allegations have been made against him about 2 indecent assaults on women some 30 years ago. This is a traumatic time for Bp Michael, his family and those who made the allegations. It is also something of a body blow to the clergy and people of the diocese. Please be generous in spirit and in your prayers at this time. Bp Martyn has now legally assumed all the responsibilities of the Bishop of Gloucester. Fr Leonard.
