25 new deacons and 11 priests to be ordained over three days at Liverpool Cathedral

We pray for our new deacons and priests as they are ordained this weekend.

Bishop Bev writes:
 
I am deeply grateful to the work of the Cathedral and Vocations Team to enable the weekend of ordinations.  Eleven services over three days is an amazing feat!
 
God has always called his deacons and priests to be agile and adaptive to circumstances and ministers of faith, hope and love.  These are such testing times, but it is to such a time as this, that the Almighty God has called these servants and friends of his to be deacons and priests.  It can feel a daunting task, but with the calling comes the anointing, and in the anointing comes the equipping, the enabling and the releasing. The vision,  the mission and the ministry is God’s which God shares with those whom he has called.  As Christians, we are all tasked to listen and look and discern and trust in God.  Our newly ordained will now play a key role in God’s mission and ministry, working towards the Godly vision and enabling each human being to find meaning, truth and salvation as a child of God.   I am so excited, enthralled and humbled by the new ordained leaders God is raising up and pledge my love and support as they live out their vocation.
