New bishop named for Dunkeld

Bishop Stephen Robson, auxiliary bishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, has been chosen to lead the Scottish diocese

Bishop Stephen Robson has been named as the new bishop of Dunkeld Diocese. The appointment was made official this morning at a meeting in Dundee, and his installation will take place in early January.

Bishop Robson, 62, (above) was installed as an auxiliary bishop for St Andrews and Edinburgh on June 9 2012.

His predecessor in Dunkeld was Bishop Emeritus Vincent Logan, whose resignation on the grounds of ill health was accepted in July 2012. Since then Canon Basil O’Sullivan has been serving as diocesan administrator.

Bishop Robson will bring a wide range of clerical experience to his new role, having previously served the Church as a parish priest, spiritual director of the Scots College in Rome and chancellor of St Andrews and Edinburgh Archdiocese prior to his ordination as a bishop.
