Richard Nesbitt's Ordination

Richard served at the Cathedral as deacon for a year - above is an image of him chanting the Gospel at the annual Christmas celebration. He was ordained priest in the Cathedral on 16 June with his classmate John Elliot. Marcin Mazur has just sent these wonderful pictures in.

The prostration of the candidates is a powerful and moving moment, as they offer their lives to the service of the Lord.

"What do we do next?" The new priests ponder their immediate future, as the Ordination Mass draws to a close.

I was lucky enough to attend the first Mass in the Cathedral celebrated by Fr Richard. I found it very moving indeed.
