Eleven priests and seventeen deacons ordained

 

Seventeen deacons and eleven priests were ordained in St Albans Cathedral on the 28th/29th June. Eleven priests were also ordained.

Canon Sue Groom, Diocesan Director of Ordinands said: “It was wonderful to see 17 people ordained deacon this Petertide, more than for many years. It was also good to see a reduction in the average age of those being ordained. Five of the new deacons are under 30 years old; 11 out of the 17 are under 40. Three of the new deacons will be getting married during the coming months, and another two of them have young babies – we were even joined by a baby on the ordination retreat this year!”
