St Mary’s College, Oscott was filled with joy on Saturday 29th June as eleven new deacons were appointed. His Grace, Archbishop Bernard Longley, led the Diaconate Ordinations in front of the deacons’ family, friends and supporters in a packed chapel.

The new deacons represent dioceses across the UK. Let us pray for the deacons, and that the Lord will continue to send labourers to the harvest. Please visit to read about some of the men who were ordained.
