Dame Sarah named as bishop

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

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.
