New Deacons in Formation

Deacons to be with their wives and families and Bishop Kieran
Bishop Kieran joined many deacons and their wives on Friday 6th September at St Edward the Confessor, Keymer not only to give thanks for the work of the diaconate in the diocese, but also to admit during Evening Prayer two candidates on the path towards ordination, Duncan Brown from Hastings and Liam McIlvenny from Keymer and during Mass to institute Colin Purchase from Seaford as an acolyte.

Duncan and Liam after a preparation year now look forward to three years of more intense study and reflection before ordination. Colin looks forward next year to ordination as a deacon.

If you are interested in finding out yourself about the diaconate then you can come along to the Diaconate Information Morning on Saturday 26th October at the Christian Education Centre in Crawley. For more information see the poster below.
