EPISCOPAL ORDINATION AND INSTALLATION OF BISHOP-ELECT GREGORY BENNET AS TENTH BISHOP OF SALE
I am delighted to confirm that Bishop-elect Greg Bennet will be ordained Tenth Bishop of Sale on Tuesday 8th December 2020 at 11am at St Mary’s Cathedral Sale.
The ordination and installation will respect the restrictions as prescribed by the State of Victoria. An assessment based on the restrictions as proposed from 23 November will see St Mary’s Cathedral Sale able to hold 70 people.
While we would have clearly liked to offer welcome and hospitality to everyone, we will be restricted to the Apostolic Nuncio, Principal Consecrator and Co-Consecrating Bishops, Bishops of the Victorian Province, the College of Consultors and clergy required for the liturgy.
Other liturgical ministries, COVID officers, restricted Diocesan representatives & Cathedral staff, and those required for the live streaming will form part of the 70 participants. The attendance of Bishop-Elect Greg’s family and friends will be few.
We hope you will join us via live-streaming, on this website, as we ordain and welcome our new bishop.
Yours in Christ,
Rev Fr Peter Slater
