Defending life
from conception to natural death


Congratulations to Alan Hopes, Catholic bishop-elect of East Anglia

12 June 2013

Bishop Alan Hopes has spoken publicly about the importance of defending life and ending abortion

John Smeaton, SPUC's chief executive, has congratulated Alan Hopes, currently auxiliary bishop of the Catholic archdiocese of Westminster, upon his appointment as bishop-elect of East Anglia.

Bishop Hopes has given public witness to the sanctity of human life, of marriage and of the family, in particular supporting vigils outside abortion centres.

In a sermon Bishop Hopes gave in Westminster cathedral last November, he prayed "that those who are in power will seek to uphold the dignity of human life until the tragedy of abortion and assisted killing is no more; and to support and strengthen the family and the values of family life." [John Smeaton, 11 January]
