Two new Candidates for Ordination to the Diaconate

Bishop Michael McKenna has recently announced that he will admit Mr Joshua Clayton and Mr Mike Williams as Candidates for Ordination to the Diaconate.

Josh will be admitted on Sunday 29th May 2016 - Corpus Christi Sunday - at the 10am Mass in the Cathedral. A date for Mike’s admittance is still to be set.

This is the next step on a journey that Josh and Mike, along with their wives Anna and Peta, began several years ago. It is the time when they will publicly express their willingness to be ordained and the Bishop will formally accept them as Candidates.The process of prayer, study and discernment will then continue for the men until the Bishop calls them to ordination. Please keep them and their families in your prayers.
