The Rt Revd Alan Hopes, Bishop of East Anglia has been interviewed by the BBC and ITV local news teams immediately ahead of Archbishop Justin’s arrival there.
“It’s a great privilege to have the Archbishop of Canterbury visit our St John’s Roman Catholic Cathedral. We believe he will be the first Archbishop of Canterbury to speak here. He’s gathering together ecumenical leaders from across the city. The theme of his visit is reconciliation, so to begin at the RC Cathedral and then move onto the Synagogue opposite is a very important gesture. We already have good connections with Norwich Synagogue.”
