Saturday (29th June 2019) was a day of great celebration in the diocese as ordination services were held in Lincoln Cathedral.

In the morning, Bishop David ordained 12 people as deacon, and later the same day he ordained nine people as priest.

Those ordained deacon were as follows:

  • Sherine Angus (to serve in  The Alford Group)
  • Alex Borman (Branston with Nocton and Potterhanworth)
  • Sara Davies (The Graffoe Group)
  • Simon Dean (Bottesford with Ashby)
  • Aron Donaldson (Corby Glen)
  • Robert Jaggs-Fowler (Barton-on-Humber)
  • Alice Jolley (Lincoln, St Nicholas)
  • Paul Maple (Welton and Dunholme, with Scothern)
  • Matt Rodgers (Lincoln, St Swithin)
  • Sarah Tierney (Frodingham and New Brumby)
  • James Titley (St Wulfram, Grantham)
  • Catherine Wylie (Caistor).

We continue to ask those in the diocese and further afield to hold all those ordained on Saturday in prayer, and an initial photo gallery appears below.
