Joy and celebration are the order of the day at ordination services There were scenes of great joy and celebration at each of the ordination services held in the diocese over the weekend of Saturday, 30th June and Sunday, 1st July 2018. On the Saturday evening in Lincoln Cathedral, Bishop Christopher ordained nine people as deacons, and the following morning seven people were ordained as priests at services held in St Botolph’s Church in Boston and Grimsby Minster. All of those ordained had been led in retreat by Canon Dr Christina Baxter CBE, and we continue to pray for: DeaconsPaul Dickinson, Al Jenkins, Evan McWilliams, Arabella Milbank Robinson, Claire Mitchell, Mel Parkin, Rachel Revely, Alistair Ward and Paul Whiteley.
