New Patron’s of the Catholic Archive Society

I am delighted to announce the appointment of two new patrons to the Catholic Archives
Society:

Our new episcopal patron is Bishop Robert Byrne CO, current bishop of Hexham
and Newcastle. Bishop Robert has an impressive track record in promoting Catholic
heritage, both during his time as Auxiliary Bishop in Birmingham as a trustee in
charge of both the Oscott Heritage Subcommittee and the Diocesan Patrimony and
Archive Committee, as well as more recently with the interest he has taken in both
the long-term future of the Hexham and Newcastle Diocesan Archive and
movements towards the formation of a Hexham and Newcastle Diocesan Patrimony
Committee.

Our new lay patron is Dr Carmen Mangion, currently senior lecturer in the
Department of History, Classics and Archaeology at Birkbeck University. Dr
Mangion has a respected reputation within Catholic history research networks, is a
regular user of Catholic archives, and has developed an excellent working
relationship with a number of religious communities.

Both are appointed with immediate effect and, in line with our constitution, will serve a
maximum term of ten years. We are very grateful to both Bishop Robert and Dr Mangion for
agreeing to take on these roles and their willingness to advocate for the importance of Catholic
archives in their respective spheres.

Jonathan Bush (Chair of the CAS)
