Archbishop Wilson’s lawyer Ian Temby QC told the court on Tuesday his client planned to lodge an appeal against his conviction.

The arrangements made by Pope Francis for the care of the Archdiocese by the Apostolic Administrator Bishop Greg O’Kelly SJ remain in place while the search for a new Archbishop continues.

Bishop O’Kelly said he was keeping Archbishop Wilson in his prayers as he formally commences this stage in his life, while also remembering the victims and survivors of abuse in the Church.
