A correspondent has passed on news of Ben Grist, a seminarian of the Diocese of East Anglia who has been studying at Oscott. Ben was diagnosed with a serious cancer and asked to be ordained to the priesthood. The Rector of Oscott and the Diocesan Administrator supported his petition and Fr Ben Grist was ordained at Oscott on Saturday by Archbishop Longley.
Congratulations to Father on his ordination. His priestly office, even in such difficult circumstances, will be of incalculable value. Please join the many people who are praying for Father and his family. (My correspondent told me of a small group who are praying particularly to Teresa Higginson.)
