On Saturday 4th July 2015, Shaun Morrison was Ordained to the Permanent Diaconate by the Right Revd Alan Hopes, Bishop of East Anglia. Mgr Keith Newton preached at the Ordination Mass which included these words to Shaun "The ordained person is a servant of both Christ and his Church and the Deacon particularly symbolises in his life and ministry that calling of the whole church to service. In that service he is to follow the pattern of Christ the Good shepherd spending himself in the care of those committed to his charge"
Shaun was joined by many clergy and friends for what was a wonderful celebration. Hymns included 'Christ is made the sure foundation' and 'Stand up for Jesus'. This was the first ever Ordination to take place in the Parish of Kings Lynn, at the Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation, where there is the Pontifical Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham restored by Pope Leo XIII in 1897
Shaun is part of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham and will serve for both the Ordinariate and the East Anglia Diocese.
