Priests of the Church of England or of a Church in communion are invited to join in the laying-on-of-hands at the ordination of priests. Please plan to arrive at least ½ hour before the appointed service time.

Please announce these ordinations in your churches and congregations so that the candidates can be upheld in your prayers as they make their final preparations towards ordination as deacon or priest.
