Ordination pics more to come...been a busy day!



We read that in the first days of the Church,
"the multitude of believers had but one heart and one soul; neither did any one say that aught of the things which he possessed was his own." Of this fervent company, one only is singled out by name, Joseph, a rich Levite, from Cyprus. "He having land sold it, and brought the price and laid it at the feet of the apostles."
They now gave him a new name, Barnabas, the son of consolation.
'You are a priest for ever; a priest like Melchizadek of old'. +

Please pray for those men to be ordained to the Sacred Priesthood  at Brentwood Cathedral today.
Revv David Waller, Jon Ravensadle, Robert Page, Ivor Morris,
Lee Bennett, Robert White & Jeffrey Woolnough
