Congratulations to our new priests and deacons
02 July 2018 IN: People News
Congratulations to our new clergy who were ordained in two joyful services at Manchester Cathedral over the last two weekends.
We had a bumper crop of 23 deacons, the largest group ever, ordained by the Bishop of Manchester on 1 July. The cathedral was packed with friends, family, church members and clergy who were there to support the new clergy and celebrate with them.

It's been quite a day. Lots of emotion, lots of thanks to so many who have supported me on this journey.

My cake. Showing the support I’ve had from my amazing sending parish @StMichaelsFlix and my wonderful & very busy family. Somehow between dance practice, athletics, cricket and work my family have supported me through ordination training & I am a deacon @DioManchester pic.twitter.com/7NDbwYOVuP— Jennifer Beaumont (@Jennicarrbeau) July 1, 2018
In a reflective mood this morning. After 25 years @HathershawC in @HumHathershaw team it was lovely to have my colleagues there to support me for my ordination #NewRevs #goingtomissyou pic.twitter.com/bltbkRobuN— Anne Gilbert (@AER66) July 4, 2018
Thank you so much to everyone who came to my ordination yesterday; for all those that have prayed; for all the messages of love and congratulations; and for all my amazing cards and gifts. My heart is full. pic.twitter.com/Lq7kW3iN4P— Janet O'Neill (@Yodasears72) July 2, 2018
