It was a day of celebration at the Cathedral, on Saturday 25th June 2016, when the Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner, ordained fifteen men and women as deacons to serve in parishes across Sussex.

The role of a Deacon is an important one as they assist priests in parishes, usually for a year, before going on to be ordained as a priest.  They assist in leading worship, offering pastoral care and gain valuable experience of preaching.

It was a full Cathedral on the day as the ordinands were joined by family, friends and parishioners from the parishes in which they will serve.

"We are praying for each of them and I know that each of the communities in which they will serve will warmly welcome them and their families at the start of their public ministries," said Bishop Martin.
