With a Deed of Installation, signed by the College of Bishops, the Right Rev Kevin Pearson becomes our new diocesan bishop today (Wednesday, 1 July 2020). This marks the end of our episcopal vacancy which started on the 11th October 2018 with the retirement of the Right Rev Gregor Duncan.
While we cannot be together to celebrate Bishop Kevin’s enthronement due to lockdown restrictions, through a series of online offerings we hope to welcome him and his wife Elspeth to the Diocese digitally.
Please pray for Bishop Kevin and Elspeth, for Bishop Gregor, for the College of Bishops, for those who cared for the Diocese during the vacancy and for those who offered themselves through the discernment process. Pray also for the people of the Diocese of Argyll and The Isles, the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway, and the whole Scottish Episcopal Church.
