There will be no service of Evening Prayer at 16.30 at the Priory next Sunday, 04 February. This is because of a special service of welcome that will be taking place in Ripon Cathedral that afternoon at 15.30 for the Rt Revd Dr Helen-Ann Hartley. Bishop Helen-Ann is the Area Bishop-designate of Ripon and the service marks the formal start of her ministry. She will have oversight of parishes in the Ripon Episcopal Area (which includes Bolton Priory) under the leadership of the diocesan bishop, the Rt Revd Nick Baines. More information about Bishop Helen Ann can be found on the diocesan website here.
