 Ordinations 2018

The Petertide Ordinations this year will take place on Sunday 1 July at Coventry Cathedral. Bishop John will be ordaining 9 priests at 10.30am and Bishop Christopher will be ordaining 9 deacons at 4.00pm.
The candidates for ordination would really appreciate your prayers for them over the next few weeks, and especially if they could be included in your Sunday intercessions. Attached is a list of ordination candidates, their title parishes, and a prayer to use.
In addition, this is a great time to pray for more people to recognise the call of God. There’s more about exploring calling to ordination at http://www.dioceseofcoventry.org/vocation.
