Each of the new priests were ordained deacon a year ago and will continue to serve as curates in the same parishes
Amongst the many things the new priests can look forward to is the celebration of the Eucharist, or Holy Communion, for the first time.
Each of the newly ordained priests will be celebrating their ordinations in the communities in which they serve as well, of course, as with family and friends.
