It was announced today at 11am (British Time) that the Holy Father has appointed Monsignor Mark Davies as Coadjutor Bishop of Shrewsbury.

Monsignor Davies, untill now the Vicar General of Salford Diocese, will be ordained on the 22nd February 2010. Initially he will work along side Bishop Brian until such time as Bishop Brian retires, at which point Bishop Elect will become the Ordinary, the Diocesan Bishop.

We offer Bishop Elect Mark our warmest congratulations and prayers. We also look forward to welcoming him to The Cathedral in the very near future.
