#NewRevs 2020

Due to lockdown restrictions, the annual Petertide ordination of deacons that was due to take place last weekend was postponed until Michaelmas, 26 September.

However, the new ordinands were licensed as lay workers via Zoom on 27 June so they can begin their roles across the diocese as restrictions allow ahead of their ordinations. You will be able to get to know them as we spotlight them each week on the diocesan website.

The full list or ordinands is:
