A Weekend of Ordinations
Wednesday 25th July 2012

At two ordinations over the past weekend, three new deacons and a new priest were ordained for service in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

Fr Brian Gill was ordained to the sacred priesthood by the Bishop of Menevia on Saturday, in the presence of Mgr Keith Newton. Fr Gill was Vicar General of the Traditional Anglican Church (TTAC), a part of the Traditional Anglican Communion in the United Kingdom, from 2003 to 2009. As such, together with Anglican bishops from around the world he signed the Portsmouth Declaration in 2007, the hopes of which are fulfiled in the establishment of Personal Ordinariates.

Fr Gill was born in the West Indies, and trained under the Mirfield fathers at Codrington College, Barbados. He travelled to Jerusalem with the Lambeth Bishops before moving to Britain in 1974 to serve in the Anglican diocese of Hereford. He left the Church of England for the TTAC following the ordination of women in the Church of England in the 1990s.

Saturday also saw the ordination of the Revd Kenneth Berry, the Revd Paul Gibbons, and the Revd Donald Minchew, by the Right Reverend Paul Hendricks (Auxiliary of Southwark). Celebrated at the church of the Precious Blood, Borough, the ordination was attended by friends and family of the candidates, as well as priests of the Personal Ordinariate and the local diocese.

We look forward to the ordination of the three men as priests in September.
