Comments: Alison White consecrated Bishop of Hull

Me thinks that "a one minute's service" needs to be changed to "silence" as I'm sure that the consecration took much longer than a mere 60 seconds?

The typo is in the original. I've added an editorial 'sic'.

The Roman Catholic Bishop of Middlesborough was present? I seem to recall this was not the case at Bishop Libby's consecration - quite a step if so.

I welcome this appointment, but have to ask is it the best use of the limited time of 60 Bishops to be at one service when they so often have little time to visit parishes and see clergy? Also the expense could be better used. Do they also need to stand blocking everyone else's view?!

Stockport is in the Catholic Diocese of Shrewsbury and the bishop there is a very sound Catholic..Opus Dei.

I wish the Flickr photos would identify who is who. I only recognize +Ebor and +Lane

This report repeats the error from the Diocese of York's report that the consecration was on Friday 3rd of June. The 3rd of June was a Wednesday.
The consecration took place on Friday 3rd July, as the BBC news report confirms

[Ed: thanks - corrected editorially]

And it's Waikato - not as spelt in the press release.

I witnessed the consecration of Alison White at York Minster July 3rd 2015....
The real presence of Christ shone through. He was at the centre and no other. Alison White stood sure and steadfast, a pilgrim of God, ready to recommit her life willingly to His higher calling, aware of the rocky ascent before her yet
holding within a tangible peace and dignity which
was inspirational....So refreshing!
