Having served the Diocese as Archbishop for the past 11 years, Archbishop George Stack travels to Cardiff Cathedral for the installation of his successor as Archbishop.
During the Liturgy, having received the mandate from Pope Francis, Archbishop will ceremoniously hand over the crozier (shepherd’s crook) as a sign of the transfer of responsibility and authority for the diocese. At this point Archbishop Mark O’Toole takes canonical possession of the Archdiocese of Cardiff becoming the eighth Archbishop, and Archbishop George Stack will take the title Archbishop-emeritus as he enters into retirement.
Ad multos annos to both Archbishops.
PLEASE NOTE: The start time of the Mass is yet to be confirmed.
