Neil Kelley as Rector of St James, Bushey
We see him kneeling with the Bishop of St Albans, above.
Below are pictures of the incoming procession and the new

Duly installed, he is greeted by church and local dignitaries,
and children of St James Youth Club.
After the procession left church, we walked through the sunny

Here Fr Neil greeted those who had made the long pilgrimage
as well as a party of ordinands and clergy from the College of
the Resurrection, Mirfield.
Finally, he boarded the coach to bid farewell before we headed
back up the motorways to Crosby.
