Archbishop Coleridge is wasting no time in putting his words into practice, of being “hands-on” from the outset.  It has been great seeing him in the Cathedral celebrating daily Mass, something he hopes to continue doing.

He is quoted in The Catholic Leader as saying, “From the outset I want to be quite ‘hands on’ so I can get a handle on things from early on, […] I don’t want things happening around me or decisions being taken without reference to me.”  The article continues: “The setting up of an office in the Francis Rush Centre next to St Stephen’s Cathedral, and the intention to celebrate Mass as often as possible in the cathedral, are among practical ways Archbishop Coleridge will achieve this.”
