The Cathedral is now closed…
…as the Electoral College of the Church in Wales is now meeting to elect a successor as Bishop of Llandaff.
The College may meet for up to three consecutive days in order to reach a decision; if it is unable to do so within this deadline the decision passes to the Bench of Bishops.
The Electoral College meeting began today (Tuesday February 21st) with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Following the service the college members meet in private as the Cathedral is locked.
Almighty God, giver of every good gift,
look graciously on your Church,
and with your heavenly wisdom
so guide the minds of those
who shall choose a bishop for this Diocese,
that we may receive a faithful pastor
to feed your flock
and lead us in the way of holiness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
