Deacon Albert’s Ordination- 25th June 2021
It is always a wonderful occasion when the church can celebrate an ordination.
Bishop Mark will be ordaining Deacon Albert to the Sacred Priesthood on Friday 25th June at the Cathedral.
We will be getting ready with preparations for his special day now which includes inviting his family and friends, as well as parishioners and pupils from the schools that he has been chaplain to.
It is the custom to give the newly ordained priest a gift(s) on his ordination day and we will therefore be handing out special envelopes for people in the coming weeks, so that people can make a donation towards the cost of the special day and for a gift(s) for Deacon Albert. He has requested that we have a meal in the garden after the ordination ceremony, so I will be asking for volunteers to help with this.
There are a variety of ways to contribute to Deacon Albert’s special day. Envelopes: Please place in the marked envelopes your cash donation, or a cheque payable to “Plymouth Cathedral PRCDTR”.
If you would like to make a BAC’s transfer please mark the transfer- “Ordination Gift”. The following are the bank details:

Congratulations to Andrea Martignon on receiving the ministry of Acolyte on Saturday evening. This ministry marks a milestone in his journey towards the priesthood. As he was unable to go home for this ministry, Bishop Mark kindly agreed to confer this ministry on him whilst he is with us on his mission year here with us at the Cathedral.

2021 - Year of St. Joseph
In his Apostolic Letter Patris Corde meaning 'With a Father's Heart', Pope Francis has declared that the year 2021 is dedicated to St. Joseph. This is to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of St. Joseph being declared Patron Saint of the Universal Church.
