Bishop Crispian Hollis

Please pray for Bishop Crispian Hollis, Portsmouth who has been diagnosed with bowel cancer...

From the Catholic

"Bishop Crispian Hollis of Portsmouth has announced in a letter to his clergy that he has been diagnosed with bowel cancer.

The 74-year-old bishop, who is soon to retire, had been diagnosed with the disease after a CT scan in mid-June at the Queen Alexandria Hospital, Portsmouth.

Bishop Hollis said the scan had revealed a cancer “which is probably malignant”. A biopsy and MRI scan will be carried out in early August, he said.

He has said that he would still hope to join the diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes from August 21 to 27."
