News and events Stories Sharing in prayer for those preparing for ordination Services of ordination are to be held in Lincoln Cathedral this weekend (Saturday, 29th June 2019). A time of great celebration in the life of our diocese, Bishop David is set to ordain 12 people at the Ordination of Deacons (10.30am), and then later the same day he will ordain nine people as priests (at a service beginning at 5pm). As in recent years, a downloadable ember card has been prepared to help people in the diocese and further afield to hold those to be ordained in prayer. The card is available here. The images below show those to be ordained deacon and priest, respectively.
