Bishop Paul said “Saturday is a joyous day for me as, alongside my fellow bishops and members of our college of presbyters, I ordain another eight sisters and brothers into the ministerial priesthood of the Church. I had the pleasure of meeting them earlier in the week and seeing at first hand their joy, good humour, deep prayer and committed discipleship. I spoke to them of the priest as a bringer of abundant life in Christ (John 10:10) and I am confident that their own lives will reflect and cascade this abundance wherever they serve.
In the awesome space of our Cathedral church I will be praying that the awesome and intimate Spirit of God fills our new priests with a greatly renewed sense of their calling and with the assurance of Christ's love and equipping power. I look forward to welcoming them all, together with their families, congregations and supporters, and I know that like me you will be praying for their ongoing ministries.”
If you wish to come and enjoy this special moment for both the candidates, their families and their friends and support them you will need to be seated by 2:45pm at the latest please.
