Installation of the Eighth Bishop of Sheffield
23rd September 2017
The installation of the Eighth Bishop of Sheffield, the Rt Revd Dr Pete Wilcox, will take place at Sheffield Cathedral on Saturday, 23 September at 15.00.
Attendance at the event will be by ticket only. Every parish will have the opportunity to send representatives. During August and early September, the ticketing process will be as follows:
- Early August - Formal printed card invitations to the County and Civic list, Diocesan list, Cathedral list and Bishop's personal guests.
- Mid August - Email invitations to all beneficed and licensed clergy in the Diocese as well as those with PTO to invite them to attend and robe. A similar invitation will be extended to Readers.
- Mid August - Each parish and worshipping community will be invited by email to nominate two people to receive an e-ticket for the service.
Once it is known how many spare places remain in the Cathedral any remaining tickets will be released on Eventbrite through September. This process will be announced on the Diocesan and Cathedral websites, ebulletins and social media.
