Bishop George Stack to be the next Archbishop of Cardiff

It was announced today during the Chrism Mass in Westminster Cathedral that Pope Benedict has appointed the Right Reverend George Stack as the seventh Archbishop of Cardiff. Bishop Stack has served as an Auxiliary Bishop in Westminster for the past 10 years. Throughout his time in the diocese, as priest and Bishop, he has been a great supporter of the work of ST PAULS in Westminster.

Last year Bishop Stack gave an endorsement to the book Our Priests, which is a collection of prayers, prose, poems and artwork produced by students from schools within the diocese in appreciation of priests. The book was part of the contribution of ST PAULS to the Year for Priests. Bishop Stack is pictured here at the launch of the book in July at St Vincent de Paul School, Westminster.

All at ST PAULS offer their congratulations to Bishop Stack and the assurance of our prayers as he prepares for his move to Cardiff.
