Ordinations at Blackfriars

Thursday, September 22, 2011
On the 17th of September our brothers Haavar Nilsen and Robert Verrill were ordained to the diaconate, and fr. Lawrence Lew to the priesthood by Archbishop Joseph Tobin, secretary of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life . The day was not only a joyful day for the Province but for the brothers' families and friends who had come to support them and share in their joy.
Fr. Lawrence will be working in the University of Edinburgh's Catholic chaplaincy and brs. Haavar and Robert will serve as deacons at Blackfriars, Oxford. Please keep them and their missions in your prayers.

The soundtrack of the video below contains a live recording of the specially composed motet by James MacMillan.  For more information visit the NLM.
