Ordination of Priests - 2011

Bishop James ordained 14 new priests at a packed service at Liverpool Cathedral yesterday.

Bishop James ordained 14 Deacons into the Priesthood on Sunday June 12. The preacher was Rachel Treweek, currently Archdeacon of Northholt who also led the retreat.

God of Glory and unquenchable Spirit, May your Son direct us afresh to the fire of your presence, Where nothing may amaze us more than your love, Nothing may inspire us more than your forgiveness And nothing may dazzle us more than your beauty, disclosed to us in your world, your story and your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
