Sorry to be so rubbish about posting things on here recently... The last two weeks we've had Schools Outreach, where Year 6 students come into the seminary to learn about our life here, about the priesthood, and about their faith. It's a great opportunity to sow seeds, in the hope that the children will be encouraged to live their faith in a radical way, and who knows? Some of them might even decide to be priests or sisters.
Today our five deacons-to-be returned from their week's retreat, including East Anglia's own, Luke and Michael. They will be ordained on Saturday, so please keep them in your prayers, that they may be given the grace to be faithful to their decision and to persevere on the unique path to holiness that God had given them. Next year they will hopefully be ordained priest.
Right, I'm off to bed.
