Diocese in Europe Michaelmas Ordinations: The Revd Peter Hales Ordained Priest in Coutances



One of the newest priests in the Diocese in Europe was ordained on Saturday 3 October. I presided at the ordination of the Revd Peter Hales in the beautiful chapel of the Centre d'Accueil of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Coutances, attended by members of the congregation of Christ Church Coutances and the daughter congregation in Vezins, and by clergy and readers from Normandy, Brittany and Spain. Two Roman Catholic priests were also robed and in the procession, a witness to the warm ecumenical links which Fr Peter and the members of the parish have forged over the past years.

As Assistant Curate of Christ Church, Coutances, Fr Peter Hales continues his ministry in la Manche, an expanding area of Anglican work, as well as continuing in the Post Ordination Training programme of the Diocese in Europe. (More photos can be seen in the photo gallery on this site).
