A while back I mentioned that we went on retreat to prepare for Admission as Candidates, when we make a formal resolve to continue in our formation and be spiritually and mentally formed to be faithful to Christ and His Church as deacons and priests. Tonight four of us will receive Candidacy (for the dioceses of Birmingham, Nottingham, and myself for East Anglia), celebrated by Bishop Malcom McMahon of Nottingham diocese. We are excited, and grateful to God for this occassion! Please pray for us, that we may carry out our resolve of fidelity to Christ and the Church. Thank you!
