Ordination to the Priesthood


"One of the greatest joys a bishop has, is to ordain priests for his diocese", these were words that Archbishop Peter said during the ordination Mass of three new priests for the Archdiocese of Southwark on Saturday 16th July 2016. 

In a busy Cathedral, family, friends, and parishioners gathered to pray for Philip Andrews, David Howell, and Daniel Weatherley (from St Augustine's) as they completed their journey to the priesthood. 

Archbishop Peter was the principal celebrant and ordaining bishop; he was joined by Bishop Paul Hendricks, Bishop Nicholas Hudson (former Southwark Priest, former Rector at the Venerable English College, and an Auxiliary in Westminster), over ninety other priests from Southwark Diocese and beyond, together with Deacons and laity for an uplifting and prayerful celebration of Mass.
