Ordinariate Diaconal Ordination at Aylesford Priory

At Aylesford Priory in Kent on Saturday the 7th of May, eight men were ordained to the Diaconate to serve in the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.   Among them was Christopher Lindlar, formerly Rector of St. Andrew’s Deal and now pastor of the East Kent Ordinariate Group.
The Ordinary, Mgr Keith Newton, presented the candidates to Bishop John Hine, auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of Southwark, who celebrated the Ordination Mass.
