Day 103 – Third Sunday after Trinity

The Petertide ordination of priests and deacons – which unavoidably necessitates the laying-on of hands – has been postponed from this weekend until September.

Instead, this afternoon, Bishop Nicholas will license thirteen deacons-to-be as lay workers on Zoom. Now isn’t that a sign of the times? These new curates will become another feature in the strange history of 2020.

As always we should pray for the ministries of these women and men who will be serving in Salisbury Diocese. Please remember them in your prayers today: Adrian, Ali, Caroline, Gerry, Helen, Helen, Karen, Katie, Leila, Matt, Nick, Nick and Sharon. May the Lord strengthen them in their work for his kingdom.
