Applause as appointment of Bishop of Llandaff confirmed

The bishops of the Church in Wales met in “Sacred Synod” to confirm the appointment of the new Bishop of Llandaff.

June Osborne, who has served as Dean of Salisbury for the past 13 years, was chosen as the 72nd Bishop of Llandaff, with her election confirmed at the Sacred Synod which took place during last Friday’s evensong service at Brecon Cathedral.

The confirmation was greeted by applause. The new Bishop of Llandaff was consecrated at Brecon Cathedral on Saturday. She will be enthroned at Llandaff Cathedral on July 22.
