Ordination of deacons and priests

First published on: 26th May 2021

Please pray for all those to be ordained this year and especially for these candidates who will serve in our Diocese. Pray for them in these final weeks of preparation and for a rich outpouring of God’s grace for them and for the whole Church.

Please pray also for their families, friends, for all those who have supported and encouraged them on their journey and for those with whom they will serve.

Finally, I ask you to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send labourers into his harvest, that God will raise up vocations among us and that many will respond with generosity and obedience.
