Episcopal ordination of John MacWilliam

On Saturday 20th of May 2017, our confrere, John MacWilliam, was ordained bishop by Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald, MAfr, at Worth Abbey in England, where John had completed high school.

John was indeed appointed Bishop of Laghouat-Ghardaïa, succeeding Claude Rault, M.Afr., who had resigned several months ago, having reaching the limit age of activity as bishop. John preferred to receive episcopal ordination in England rather than in Algeria where visas take a long time to be granted.
