I know this post is a little later than expected, but nether the less it is still important

On Wednesday 2nd July at 6:30pm, Archbishop George Stack held the first ordination to the priesthood of a member of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in front of a strong congregation at St David’s Cathedral.

Rev. Bernard Sixtus was ordained to the Diaconate back in January and has since been working as the Diocesan Director of Religious Education for Schools. This ordination also marks the first priesthood ordination within the diocese in 7 years.

Among those present at the ceremony were Msgr Keith Newton, Ordinary of the Ordinariate, Fr Bernard’s Family and representatives from the Church in Wales parish Fr Bernard last served.

We wish Fr Bernard well as he continues his work within the diocese and takes on a pastoral role serving the parish of Usk.

Ad Multos Annos!
