THE Bishop of Ely, the Rt Revd Stephen Conway, officially returned to work on Monday after recovering from a burst appendix.
The bishop was rushed to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge on February 10 and was operated on the same day to tackle the ailment.
He spent six weeks recovering at home in the city.
A spokesman for the Diocese of Ely said: “Bishop Stephen wishes to express his gratitude and thanks for all the good wishes, cards and prayers he has received, and is much looking forward to being back at work.”
Bishop Stephen was installed as the 69th Bishop of Ely in March 2011, taking over the role from Dr John Russell who stood down after 10 years.
