Connor Bishop-designate, the Ven George Davison, today announced that plans for his consecration as Bishop of Connor on May 1 have been postponed.
This is due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. Bishop-designate George, rector of the Parish of St Nicholas, Carrickfergus, was elected Bishop of Connor in succession to the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy, on February 17. His appointment was confirmed by the House of Bishops on March 11.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Bishop-designate George said: “It is clear that with the extension of the ‘lockdown’ period announced, even the very modest service planned is no longer possible. A new date will not be chosen until such times as the government guidelines allow it to go ahead safely.”
