Tomorrow, Saturday 4 June 2011, the Archbishop of Southwark will — at the request of the Ordinary — ordain seven men to the priesthood in the Catholic Church, for service in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. The Solemn Mass of ordination will take place in Southwark Cathedral at 3.00pm and will mark the start of this summer's ordinations to the priesthood for the Ordinariate.
On Monday 6 June, the Bishop of Clifton and the Archbishop of Birmingham will ordain deacons, and the Archbishop of Westminster will ordain more priests in Westminster Cathedral on Friday 10 June at 5.30pm. All are very welcome to each of these. Please pray for those preparing for ordination.
A full schedule for the ordinations is published on the website www.ordinariate.org.uk in the Calendar section. The list of prospective candidates is listed in the News section of the website.
