We’re getting ready to celebrate as five new priests and eight new deacons prepare to be ordained in Gloucester Cathedral this weekend. Please hold all of these candidates in your prayers as they approach this special time in their life.
This newest generation of clergy will join others in leading churches through prayer, teaching, and worship. In doing so, they will further the mission of the Church, to be a Church for all people and for all places.
The new priests have already been working in churches throughout the Diocese as ordained deacons, learning the work of a priest and assisting their parish priest in the running of the church. The service in the Cathedral is the final step for the new priests after years of training.
