In what was a bit of an "ordination road-show", Archdeacon David Sutch, Area Dean Canon Hugh Broad, my chaplain Deacon Frances Hiller and I flew from Madrid following the ordination of Nigel Thomas, to Tenerife, for what I believe to be the first Anglican ordination in the Canary Islands: Jennifer Elliot de Riverol who was made deacon on Sunday 3 July in All Saints Church, Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife.

The Area Dean was the preacher for the service, and one of Jennifer's lecturers at the Eastern Regional Ministry Course in Cambridge, the Revd Richard Morgan, was one of her presenters.
