Ordinations in Oxford

Monday, July 11, 2016

On Sunday 10th July 2016, brothers Oliver Keenan and Matthew Jarvis were ordained to the priesthood, along with brother Jean-Baptiste Regis, who was ordained to the diaconate. 

Brs Oliver and Matthew have contributed to Godzdogz over a number of years during their formation, particular Br Matthew who was responsible for some time for the organisation and managing of Godzdogz. Both have now left the team as they begin their new lives as priests in the Order. Br Jean-Baptiste also leaves us having been in Oxford for two years, and contributed a number of articles to the blog. Later in the year he will move onto Africa for a period of pastoral work. 

Please keep our brothers in your prayers.
