Diaconal Ordinations at the Beda

Eleven students from the Pontifical Beda College in Rome were ordained to the diaconate on Wednesday by Cardinal James Harvey. The ordination took place at the Basilica of St Paul's outside the Walls where Cardinal Harvey is the Archpriest. Cardinal Pell was also present. The eleven students, of whom two are religious and the rest diocesan, are from Great Britain, Australia, Ghana, Holland and Singapore. All have reached the end of their third year of Theology at the Pontifical Beda College. Among the newly-ordained is Paul Gillham, formerly Director of Music at St Etheldreda's, Ely Place, London and also fondly remembered as an inspiring singing teacher by many pupils at the Cardinal Vaughan School.

Ad multos annos!
