Dame Sarah named as bishop
Dame Sarah Mullally was installed as the 133rd Bishop of London at St Paul’s Cathedral, becoming one of the most senior figures in the Church of England and the first woman to hold the post.
The former nurse was invested on International Nurses Day – Florence Nightingale’s birthday – echoing the new bishop’s former career as a nurse.
Bishop Mullally performed the tradition of knocking three times on the Cathedral’s Great West door with her pastoral staff, a spokesman for the Diocese of London said.
In her sermon, Bishop Mullally called for a culture that “challenges deference and the abuse of power” and for victims of abuse to be listened to.
