Rt Rev Mark O'Toole, Bishop of Plymouth

As the new Bishop of Plymouth I welcome you to the website of the Diocese.  I hope you find it interesting and that it helps you understand something of the rich life of faith that is lived here in the South-West.  At the Episcopal Ordination recently I shared these words with the Diocese.  As you read them I ask you to pray for me and for the diocese.

With my kindest wishes and prayers in Our Lord,

Yours devotedly,
+Mark O'Toole
Bishop of Plymouth
