It is a truly blessed time for our diocese. Last Wednesday, on the eve of the feast of St. Thomas, Archbidhop George Stack ordained Rev. Bernard Sixtus to the priesthood - this is the first priestly ordination since 2007. The ordination homily can be viewed on the diocesan website.
It has also been announced that Rev. Mr. Michael Doyle, currently assisting at St. Dyfrig's in Trefforrest, will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, 6th September at 12noon in St. David's Cathedral.
Please pray for Deacon Michael as he prepares for his ordination, and for Fr. Bernard and his family as he takes up his appointment in Usk.
