The Community’s First Ordination

On the Solemnity of Our Holy Father Augustine Father John Wisdom was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood by Bishop Brain of Salford.



Father John lies prostrate as Father Michael intones the Litany of Saints. It is a tradition of the Norbertine Order that all, save the ordinand, stand during the litany.

Congratulations Father Wisdom!
