The Revd Rik Florentinus Ordained Priest


On Saturday 26 June, in the first of this year's Petertide ordination services, Bishop Geoffrey ordained the Revd Rik Florentinus to the priesthood in Christ Church Amsterdam. Fr Rik is serving as Assistant Curate of Christ Church, where the Revd Mark Collinson (above right) is Chaplain.


Rik, his wife Elise and their children are members of the ecumenical community Spe Gaudentes ("Rejoicing in Hope"), a religious community which seeks to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ ministering in the inner city of Amsterdam. Members of the community, pictured above, were present for the ordination. The presence of an Anglican priest in the community strengthens further a vital mission partnership between Spe Gaudentes and Christ Church.
