The retirement of Bishop Tony Robinson

Posted on the 12th Apr 2024 in the category Announcements



The Society echoes the sentiments expressed by the Diocese of Leeds in its statement announcing the retirement of the Right Reverend Tony Robinson, Bishop of Wakefield, after over 20 years' service as a bishop in the Church. In addition, we wish to pay tribute to the unstinting support Bishop Tony has given to the Catholic Movement over many years, serving as Chairman of The Society's Council of Bishops and of Forward in Faith for nine years, as well as undertaking a variety of other roles, including two spells as Chairman of the Additional Curates Society. Bishop Tony has provided sacramental and pastoral oversight to Society parishes across all the episcopal areas in the Diocese of Leeds - not just in Wakefield - and we know that the Society clergy and parishes of that Diocese are profoundly grateful to him. The Right Reverend Jonathan Baker, Chairman of The Society's Council of Bishops, commented: "I speak for all the bishops of The Society, and indeed all its supporters, in sending our heartfelt thanks to Bishop Tony for all that he has done. His pastoral care for his clergy and people has been exemplary. We wish him a long and very happy retirement."
