Another priest for our diocese - Deo Gratia!

Here's a picture of the newest priest in our diocese, Fr Aaron Spinelli, ordained at Our Lady of Ransom, Eastbourne on Saturday. Thanks to Fr Ray Blake for this photo 'borrowed' from his blog.

We hope this will inspire more vocations to the priesthood, especially from our own parish of St Ann's. We pray that more men will respond generously to the call of Christ.

We ask God to bless Fr Aaron in his ministry.

St John Vianney, pray for us.

What lovely news to hear - thank you. I find the blog a great place to not only hear the news of the parish but also to learn - be it about saints, feast days or current events. I have to confess that I spent many years being taught by a Sister Vianney at secondary school and only recently via the blog did I learn who St John Vianney was......luckily by sharing the blog information with our son Mathew, he knows who St John Vianney is at the age of 7, rather than waiting until his 40s!!

I'm delighted that you're finding the blog helpful and that you're able to share what you learn with your son Matthew. Thank you for your comment. It's encouraging to hear that you find the blog keeps you in touch with what's going on in the parish and also helps you learn a little more about your Faith.
