Ordination at Westminster Cathedral
Saturday 26th May 2012

Seventeen men were ordained Deacon today, 26th May 2012, at Westminster Cathedral for the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. They were ordained by Bishop Alan Hopes, on behalf of Monsignor Keith Newton. The large congregation included members of their respective Ordinariate Groups and also former parishioners from their time as Anglicans. Mgr Andrew Burnham delivered the homily.

The music included the Mass for five voices by Byrd and motets by Tallis and Victoria. The hymns "Crown him with many crowns" and "Lord enthroned in heavenly splendour" were sung with great zeal, as befits the Anglican patrimony, and Dubois' "Toccata" for organ provided a joyous conclusion to the liturgy.

In the coming days and weeks, they will be ordained to the Priesthood, usually in their local Diocese. Full details are to be found in the Calendar on the website which will be updated as more dates are fixed.

Mgr Newton thanked Canon Tuckwell, the Administrator, the staff, servers and choir of the cathedral for their help and support and Bishop Hopes for ordaining these new Deacons.
