Breaking news: New Archbishop of Southwark

CONGRATULATIONS to Archbishop Peter Smith of Cardiff  who has today been appointed as the next Archbishop of Southwark.

He succeeds Archbishop Emeritus Kevin McDonald of Southwark, who resigned from the post in 2009.

“I am very much looking forward to that and to serving the people, religious, deacons and priests of the Archdiocese of Southwark as their Bishop. It is good to be returning home, although I feel there is part of me which will always have a second home in Wales,” Archbishop Smith said.
