The Right Reverend Keith Riglin, Bishop of Argyll and The Isles

The consecration of The Rev Canon Dr Keith Riglin as the new Bishop of Argyll & The Isles took place on Saturday 1 May at St John’s Cathedral, Oban.
Covid restrictions limited the numbers able to attend the ceremony, but the new Bishop was joined by the Primus, The Most Rev Mark Strange, other members of the College of Bishops, Diocesan clergy, and a small number of his invited friends and family.

Members of all local charges and others from across the province and beyond were invited to attend via a live stream of the ceremony.

The service was recorded and then broadcast on the Diocesan website and Facebook page over the weekend.

The new Bishop celebrated and preached at St John’s Cathedral on Sunday 2 May. At a later date, dependent on Covid restrictions, he will be enthroned at The Cathedral of The Isles on Cumbrae.
In January this year, Canon Riglin was selected by the Electoral Synod from a short-list of three candidates, to fill the vacancy brought about by the translation of the Rt Rev Kevin Pearson to the Diocese of Glasgow & Galloway last year.
The College of Bishops will now have a full complement of seven Bishops for the first time since 2016.
