We were very privileged to attend the enthronement ceremony of the new Archbishop of the Sudan in Juba Cathedral on Sunday 20th April. It was a very colourful ceremony and the cathedral was packed with people from all over the Sudan, as well as many overseas visitors.

We were representing CMS Ireland at the ceremony, which marked the enthronement of the Most Reverend Daniel Deng Bul as Primate of the Episcopal Church of the Sudan and Bishop of Juba. The sermon was preached by the Archbishop of Ruanda and greetings were given by Bishops and Archbishops from around the world. The Communion service lasted about 4 hours and was a very wonderful occasion.
