In this parish we have been very fortunate in the past to be able to have a hand in the training of ordination candidates and it is something we can take great pride in, in knowing that we have contributed to their formation in ministry and given them a wonderful experience in liturgy and music that they might not otherwise get. It is good to know that all students who have been here have had a positive experience and speak very warmly of us as a congregation and church community. In the coming weeks I would ask for your prayers for two former students who have now reached that stage of ordination; they are Linda Frost and David Bowles who will both be ordained in Christ Church Cathedral on Sunday 22nd September at 3:30pm.
