I know David visits here (unless there are two of you with the same name?) so I hope it would not be presumptuous to say congratulations to you, and especially, Jackie

Thanks Kate. After keeping the secret since (my diary is not to hand) a few days after the foundation of the earth, this sudden publicity and generous waves of greeting and support come as quite shock. But we are very grateful.

#WB77 for the Anglican Communion (probably 75th by date consecration as Kate Prowd (Melbourne AUS) and Emma Ineson (Penrith ENG) will be consecrated later). I think this means the C of E episcopate is about 13-14% female, 86-87% male. And I’m guessing we will see 60 women at Lambeth 2020.
