Newly Ordained Priest for Southwark
Sadly I couldn't attend because of our First Holy Communion celebrations, but on Saturday we had the great joy of ordaining another priest for the Archdiocese. Fr Cornelius Boyle was ordained by Bishop Patrick Lynch at the Virgo Fidelis parish in Upper Norwood. In the photograph you can see Fr Cornelius giving his First Blessing to the Bishop after the ordination Mass. In the background is the parish priest of Virgo Fidelis, Fr Michael O'Shea.
Fr Cornelius will serve his first appointment at St Andrew's, Thornton Heath. It is a big, multi-cultural parish with a lot going on.
Please keep Fr Cornelius in your prayers. For more photographs of the event visit the diocesan website.
