Description: Episcopal consecration ceremony of Bishop James Ward on 21st September 1960 when he was made titular Bishop of Sita and Bishop Auxiliary of Glasgow.

This film was originally catalogued with the title CONSECRATION OF MONSEIGNEUR WARD OF ST. MARY'S CALTON'. However, it would seem this is incorrect and therefore the film has been retitled, April 2009. St. Mary's in Calton at that time had a priest of a similar name (V. Rev. Michael Canon Ward).
