Revd John Porter who will celebrate 50 years of ordained ministry on 30 May. A special celebration is planned for Fr John in the Pas de Calais chaplaincy, beginning with a celebration of the Eucharist in St Omer, followed by a parish lunch. (Readers of this blog might remember that John has recently had published a useful resource for those engaged in bereavement entitled Being There. The link with more information is here.)
We wish Fr John every blessing on this great occasion of the anniversary of his ordination, along with our thanks and appreciation for so many years of faithful ministry in the Church of God, and in particular within our diocese in the Pas de Calais.
