Ordinations to the diaconate
Friday 21st November 2014

Jamie Houghton and David Butler, will be ordained as deacons for the Ordinariate on Saturday 3 January at 12 noon at the Ordinariate's central church, Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory, Warwick Street, London. 

Jamie Houghton served for 42 years as an Anglican priest before being received into the Ordinariate Group in Folkestone in April 2011. He had wide experience of youth and school chaplaincies and then spent the last 10 years of his ministry in parish life. Before his retirement, he served on The General Synod of the Church of England as part of the Catholic Group.

He is pictured here (right), preaching in Folkestone's shopping precinct.

Br David Butler was also formerly an Anglican priest. He was received into the full communion of the Catholic Church  before the Ordinariate was established. When it came into being, he was registered as a member and wanted his religious vows to be under the jurisdiction of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

Brother David has been living a simple eremitical life for some years. In March 2014, he took temporary vows as a hermit during a Mass at Warwick Street.

He is pictured here with members of the Manchester Ordinariate mission. (From left to right: Fr Andrew Starkie, Veronica Starkie, Br David Butler, and Raven Wenner.)

Please keep both men in your prayers.
