Petertide Ordinations Take Place at Chichester Cathedral

Ordinations at Chichester Cathedral
Ordinations at Chichester Cathedral


On Saturday 27 June 2015 The Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner, ordained sixteen women and men as deacon to serve in parishes across Sussex at a special service in Chichester Cathedral.

This year's new clergy included a pharmacist, a fire and rescue control room operative and someone whose grandfather and father are also both ordained.

Deacons assist priests in parishes, usually for a year, before going on to be ordained a priest.  They assist in leading worship, offering pastoral care and gain valuable experience of preaching.  Each of the candidates has been on an individual journey, often spanning many years, before their special moment.

They were supported on the day by family, friends and parishoners from the parishes in which they will serve.
