Also pray for Rev Win Fish to be ordained priest on the same occasion to serve in the Diocese of Plymouth.
We are very grateful to Bishop Christopher Budd who graciously consented to ordain us during what was already a very busy period in his diary. We are also very grateful for his generosity towards us in providing housing, and offering us appointments in the diocese.
We thank Monsignor Keith Newton for his example and fatherly care.

Above all we give thanks to our Saviour Jesus Christ for His grace poured upon us and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
