The Second Vatican Council in Rome in its decree on communications (Inter Mirifica) said that "the Church believes that its task involves employing the means of social communication to announce the good news of salvation.” This blog is part of that process by the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton to communicate that same good news about Jesus Christ.

New Deacon David King Ordained for Arundel & Brighton
Bishop Kieran with new Deacon David King
Congratulations to David King from Arundel & Brighton Diocese who was ordained Deacon on Saturday 18 December in the snow at St John's Seminary, Wonersh, near Guildford. 3 other deacons from other diocese were also ordained at the same time by our own Bishop Kieran.
We look forward to David's ordination to the priesthood next year alongside three other men who are to be ordained priest in January and February.
What a joy for the diocese as four men are to be ordained priests next year alongside four more married men who be ordained as permanent Deacons in the summer. A bumper year of ordinations for the diocese.
