Bishop Colin Buchanan

1934 - 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Bishop Colin Buchanan on 29 November 2023. Following a short illness he died peacefully and with his beloved family around him. Bishop Colin was loved and respected around the world especially through his liturgical skills. He was a beloved Bishop of Woolwich from 1996 to 2004 before retiring to the Diocese of Leeds. He will be remembered as a liturgical scholar and pastor who cared so much for individuals and parishes and will be greatly missed.

May he rest in the peace of the Risen Christ.

Please remember his family, Di, Stephanie and Judith in your prayers.
