People from around the diocese and further afield gathered in Lincoln Cathedral on Saturday (29th June 2019) for our services of ordination.

In the early evening, Bishop David ordained nine people as priest, and earlier in the day he ordained 12 people as deacon.

Those ordained priests were as follows:

  • Paul Dickinson (serving in Brumby)
  • (David Alan) Al Jenkins (St Botolph’s, Quarrington)
  • (Patrick) Evan McWilliams (St Mary & St Nicolas, Spalding)
  • Arabella Milbank Robinson (The Louth Team Ministry)
  • Claire Mitchell (The Wolds Gateway Group)
  • (Melanie) Mel Parkin (Grantham and Manthorpe)
  • Rachel Revely (Lincoln Cathedral)
  • Alistair Ward (St Peter in Eastgate, Lincoln)
  • Paul Whiteley (St Paul’s, Spalding).

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.
