AN evening of prayers was held as part of a welcome for the next Bishop of Blackburn, Julian Henderson.
Praying for Julian, held at Preston Minster, formed part of the preparation for his forthcoming consecration and inauguration.
Archdeacon of Blackburn John Hawley said: “It is about formally giving the arrival of Julian to God in prayer and consisted of a series of prayer sessions throughout the Minster, interspersed with worship and praise.”
Archdeacon Henderson said: “I am deeply humbled that my fellow clergy and parishioners from across Lancashire took the time to attend. My wife Heather and I thank everyone involved.”
Archdeacon Henderson will be consecrated as Bishop at a special service at York Minster on Thursday, October 10.
He will then be formerly installed in the role at a service at Blackburn Cathedral on Saturday, October 19.
