Diocese of Portsmouth

Ordination of Priests 2021

Start date
26 Jun 2021, 4 p.m.
End date
26 Jun 2021, 5 p.m.
Portsmouth Cathedral, High St, Portsmouth PO1 2HA

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.

They are:

  • 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.
