LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD...

 

Bishop Shane Mackinlay, was consecrated to the Episcopacy,

in Bendigo’s Sacred Heart Cathedral on October 16, 2019.

 

He is the eighth Bishop of Sandhurst.

 

Melbourne Archbishop Peter A. Comensoli was the principal consecrator, joined by Bishop Leslie Tomlinson, Bishop Emeritus of Sandhurst, and Ballarat Bishop Paul Bird CSsR as co-consecrators.

 

More than 30 Bishops and 300 clergy were present at the

ordination, including the Papal Nuncio to Australia, Archbishop Tito Adolfo Ylana, and Australian Catholic Bishops Conference president

Archbishop Mark Coleridge.

 

Dignitaries, family, friends and parishioners numbered

close to 2000 people, including those from as far as Ballarat, Echuca, Shepparton, Wangaratta and Wodonga.

Bishop Shane comes from the diocese of Ballarat.

 

He says,

“These are challenging times in which to do this, with many people feeling deeply hurt and disillusioned by the Church, I take those challenges very seriously; responding to them must be integral to whatever we do.”

 

ALLELUIA!
