Down Under, the new Bishop of Bathurst humbled by his welcome

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Bishop [Ian] Palmer said the church needed to focus on its core roles during difficult times.

“I think we can meet the challenges we face by concentrating on our core business, which is drawing people into the worship of God and living in a way that expresses our love for God in and through our love for our neighbours,” he said.

A packed cathedral welcomed Bishop Palmer as the 10th Bishop of Bathurst.
