Welcoming the news of the appointment of the new Bishop of Ebbsfleet on behalf of the Catholic Bishops of The Society of Saint Wilfrid and Saint Hilda, the Rt Revd Tony Robinson, Bishop of Pontefract, said:
I am delighted to welcome the appointment of Canon Jonathan Goodall as the fifth Bishop of Ebbsfleet. Canon Goodall has been working at Lambeth Palace for the Archbishop of Canterbury for the past eight years and has enormous personal knowledge of the Anglican Communion and the Church of England. He is well placed to continue to make a significant contribution to the Church at national level. He has been a member of the Society of the Holy Cross for the past 20 years and will be known to manyof the catholic clergy.
The parishes and clergy who look to the Bishop of Ebbsfleet for pastoral and sacramental can be sure that they have a worthy successor to be their new Bishop. Please pray for him and support him as he prepares for his Consecration in September and he begins to visit and get to know you all.
