All are welcome to an inclusive and affirming communion service, celebrating our God-given diversity. Come and worship God as the beautiful human person you are. Join us for Pride Eucharist, 4pm on Sunday.
What a wonderful couple of days for the Cathedral, and our Diocesan family, as we welcomed 6 new Deacons and 7 new Priests into the ordained ministry of the Church!
Bishop Christine led a moving and powerful service on Saturday afternoon for the Deaconing, and we were back again on Sunday morning for the Priesting. Bishop Tom Butler preached on both occasions in his characteristically engaging and thought-provoking style, reminding us, amongst other things, that the Church is called to be more like a trawler than a raft (a working boat, fishing for and feeding people – rather than a place to huddle close, focusing simply on maintenance and survival)
It was a joy to welcome friends, families and supporters from near and far to witness these 13 candidates making such a profound commitment to the service of Christ and of his people. As Bishop Christine laid hands on each candidate, the power of our prayers and the presence of God’s Holy Spirit was palpable!
Below are links to photographs of both occasions, taken by our talented Diocesan Communications Office, Martin Sheppard.
