Pray for our ordinands

A photo from an ordination service in 2022

This year, for the first time in living memory, the ordination of deacons will be conducted at four different locations around the Diocese of Chester, rather than Chester Cathedral. 

The three bishops of the diocese will each conduct the ordinations at one of the locations, with Bishop Mark visiting two. 

Please hold in your prayers all those who are to be ordained deacon on Saturday 1 July 2023.
