The Right Reverend June Osborne is the 72nd Bishop of Llandaff. A ground-breaking figure in the Church of England, Bishop June was the first female Dean to be appointed to a medieval cathedral, having served as Salisbury Cathedral’s Canon Treasurer for nearly 10 years. She was one of the first women to be ordained as a priest in England in 1994, having been a Deaconess since 1980 and Deacon since 1987. Bishop June’s ministry has been characterised by her passion for equality and diversity and she was a founder of the Church’s Leading Women programme. Bishop June is to hold the Education and Nurture portfolio in the Province, meaning that she will act as the ‘lead Bishop’ for the Church in Wales on education issues.
