Please pray for His Lordship Dr Stephen Robson.
In these trying times when the spirit of the age threatens Christian values, grant our new Bishop, Stephen, holiness of life and wisdom to direct and guide our Diocesan family, so that we may grow in your love.
With unwavering fidelity and courage, may he imitate Christ and lay down his life for his sheep. May he be faithful to the end like so many holy saints and martyrs of the Church, who have shepherded the people of God with crozier in hand.
O Mary virgin mother of our Lord, Jesus Christ, hold our Bishop Stephen close to your Immaculate Heart.
