Bishop of Chichester announces retirement.

This morning the Bishop of Chichester has annoucned his retirement, he will step down in April 2012. Dicoese news here.

I imagine speculation will shortly begin on who will take over and personally I’d be amazed if they didn’t have someone lined up already. Bishops John’s retirement plans have been one of the worst kept secrets in the church, so it’s hardly a surpise. One things for sure, it won’t be a woman…

I do not wish to alienate myself from the Dicoese, for obvious reasons, so my comment shall be brief, but it will be no surprise to anyone if I say I am not in the slightest bit upset by this news…
