Tomorrow, Saturday 2nd June, I am travelling up to Ulverston in Cumbria to deacon at another Ordinariate ordination, that of Osmond Aisbitt who was ordained deacon with me last week. As the Ordinariate is rather thinly spread up North, the need to support one another is even greater. He will be ordained by the Catholic Bishop of Lancaster, Bishop Michael Campbell, an Augustinian, the same Bishop who will ordain me a week later. So I hope to pick up a hint or two as well!
Do please remember Osmond and his family in your prayers, and the priest and people at St Mary of Furness where he has been worshipping and will now be based as priest.
I will again deacon at 11 am Mass at St Bernadette’s on Sunday, the Most Holy Trinity. The following week, I hope to deacon at 9.30 am Mass to be ready for my ordination in the afternoon. More about it later.
