Ordained today

It runs in the family.

Here is our curate, Jos - ordained priest today - alongside his dad, retired vicar, Stewart.

Jos joined us at St James and St Anne's last July straight from theological college in Cambridge after having been ordained deacon in Southwark Cathedral.

A year on, having successfully completed his first year in the diaconate, Jos was ordained as priest or presbyter today.

Now he can preside at Holy Communion - as he will do for the first time at St James tomorrow and at St Anne's next week - and in due course, when he has completed his curacy, he will be able to take on the full responsibility of being a vicar.

Congratulations, Jos, and may God bless you in this latest stage of your service for him.
