His Holiness Pope Francis has appointed the Right Reverend Stephen Wright as the Fifteenth Bishop of the Diocese. The solemn Installation of Bishop Stephen will take place at the Cathedral Church of St. Mary in Newcastle on Wednesday, 19 July 2023 at 1.00pm.

As we prepare to welcome Bishop Stephen to our Diocese, we pray for his ministry amongst us and for his dedication and vision.

Since the capacity of the Cathedral is limited, we encourage our community to join this celebration virtually by live stream via the St Mary’s Cathedral YouTube channel from 1.00pm.
