Ven Dr K. Dhammasami and
Ven Dr S. Pannyawamsa from OBV
attended the inauguration ceremony
in which the Right Revd Dr. Steven Croft
was installed as Bishop of Oxford today.

Ven Dr. K Dhammasami is the Buddhist chaplain to Oxford University.

Educated at Oxford and Durham Universities,
Bishop Croft was made bishop of Sheffield
in 2009. Now at Oxford
he will oversee over 800 churches.
He authors many books, one of them
(The Gift of Leadership)
came out today.

In his sermon he says:
“there are many rooms;
among them
the room for improvement is
the largest.”

We feel Mudita for the new bishop
and wish him the best.

“Rejoice!
Rejoice!
Let every tongue rejoice!”
(Excerpt from a hymn sung today at the service).

The ceremony took place at Christ Church, one of the many colleges of
Oxford University.
It was the place where
the Harry Potter movie
was made.
