Bishop Jan-Olof at the Grand Day Out

Bishop Jan-Olof Johansson, of the Diocese of Växjö, accompanied by Maria Kenstam, Diocesan Communications Strategy Officer, have been in Oxford Diocese to take part in the Grand Day Out and have also joined Bishop John Pritchard for part of his pre-retirement pilgrimage.

The visit is particularly symbolic as Bishop Jan-Olof is also on the cusp of retirement. The link, now 10 years old, will however go on!
