Archbishop Justin started his visit to the Diocese on Wednesday 7 November at 12 noon in St John’s Cathedral with a short ecumenical act of worship which was well attended.
The Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of East Anglia, the Rt Revd Alan Hopes welcomed the Archbishop and the County Ecumenical Officer, Catherine Howe, read from the book of John. Archbishop Justin gave a brief reflection.
The Archbishop’s visit is just a few days away from the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War One and this, combined with the Archbishop’s passion for reconciliation, has contributed strongly to the shaping of his programme which is taking him across the Diocese.
The Bishop of Norwich’s chaplain, the Revd Susanna Gunner, said;
“At the start of the Archbishop’s visit we wanted to give the opportunity for all Christian denominations to come together in an act of unity and reconciliation, the perfect launch pad for his travels around our region.”
