Ordination of Priests 2021
Three new priests will be ordained at this special service in our cathedral.
The candidates have all previously been ordained as a deacon and spent at least one year serving a parish in that capacity. They are now ready to be ordained as priests, which means they’ll be able to celebrate Communion. They will continue to serve as curates in parishes throughout our diocese.
- Rev Hannah Barraclough (The Benefice of Newport Minster, St John and Carisbrooke)
- Rev Catherine Edenborough (The Cathedral Church of St Thomas of Canterbury)
- Rev Matthew Grove (Portsdown, Christ Church and Purbrook, St John the Baptist)
Attendance at this service is by invitation only because of Covid restrictions, but it will be live-streamed on the diocese's Youtube channel.
