Bishop June Osborne is enthroned as the 72nd Bishop of Llandaff
More than 500 people packed into Llandaff Cathedral to welcome their new bishop at her enthronement service, on Saturday 22nd July.
Bishop June Osborne, the 72nd Bishop of Llandaff, spoke of her passion for pastoral ministry within a local context, as she delivered the sermon in one of her first duties as bishop after taking her seat – or ‘throne’ at Llandaff Cathedral.
She told the packed congregation that most of her strategies would be to ‘empower and strengthen the impact of the local church.’

The Diocese of Llandaff takes its name from the ancient cathedral that was established on the site of a church built by the Celtic saints in the 6th century.
Until 1920 the Anglican Welsh Church was part of the Church of England, but since that date we have been independent and autonomous, drawing up our own procedures, rules and regulations, while observing what is happening in our sister Churches of the Anglican Communion elsewhere in the UK and around the world.
The Diocese covers an area ranging from west of Neath to most of Cardiff in the east, from the Bristol Channel in the south to Merthyr Tydfil in the north.
