Six Sarum College students were among the 16 ordained deacon by Bishop Ruth in Wells Cathedral on Saturday 25 September.
Sarum Formation and Ministry students were joined by a good number of their Sarum colleagues, already ordained, who came to support them in this important moment.
One of the new curates, Ruth Motion who will be serving her curacy in the Benefice of Cheddar, Draycott and Rodney Stoke, echoed the sentiments of others in saying ‘It was a really beautiful service. You could really feel God at work.’
Our prayers and good wishes go to Ruth, Nicki, Larissa, Mark, Nick and Juliet in their new ministry as deacons, said The Revd Paul Burden, Director of Contextual Learning.
