Papal Nuncio begins four-day Diocese of East Anglia visit 

The Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain, His Excellency Archbishop Edward Adams, began a four-day visit to the Diocese of East Anglia today (May 19) by celebrating Mass at St John’s Cathedral in Norwich.

The Nuncio is touring round the Diocese after being invited by Bishop of East Anglia, Rt Rev Alan Hopes. Along with his Private Secretary, Mgr Vincent Brady, and Bishop Alan, Archbishop Adams started with a visit to the Synagogue in Norwich opposite St John’s where he met some of the Jewish congregation.

He then celebrated Mass and preached at the Cathedral before meeting parishioners over coffee.

Lunch with the Chapter of Canons was followed by a visit to Norwich Anglican Cathedral where he met Cathedral Dean the Very Rev Jane Hedges and then took part in Compline.

The Nuncio’s tour is due to continue with visits to two Catholics schools in Peterborough, Oxburgh Hall, the Catholic National Shrine at Walsingham, Sheringham, Quidenham and Cambridge.

You can follow his progress online at and see pictures at and below.
