Ordination of Revd Liz Rowles as priest.

Our curate, Liz, will be ordained priest at Manchester Cathedral by the Bishop of Bolton on Saturday 22nd June.  We will be celebrating with her on Sunday 23rd June at our 10.45am service when she presides for the first time.  There will be a lunch after the service to which all are invited.  Please pray for Liz as she embarks on this new stage in her ministry and for all those being ordained priest and deacon this month.

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts,

by your Holy Spirit you have appointed

various orders of ministry in the Church:

look with mercy on your servants

now called to be deacons and priests;

maintain them in truth and renew them in holiness,

that by word and good example they may faithfully serve you

to the glory of your name and the benefit of your Church;

through the merits of our Saviour Jesus Christ,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
