(EDP) Norfolk’s first woman bishop consecrated in historic service

Bishop Jane said: “I feel humbled and honoured to be the first woman consecrated as a bishop in Norwich Cathedral.

“It is overwhelmingly beautiful, its stones saturated by the prayers of so many generations. To God be all its glory and may the Lord Jesus be with me as I go from here to serve in this wonderful diocese.”

The Rt Rev Sarah Mullally, the Bishop of London, presided over the service as Dean of the Province of Canterbury, which saw Bishop Jane anointed with sacred oil to signify her role of leadership within the church, and given a ring and pectoral cross.
