Acolytes at HCC

Mar 29, 2014

On Thursday evening I was fortunate to be at the National Seminary, Holy Cross, for the institution of the Acolytes. The group of six included four (above) from my own diocese of Christchurch: Alister, Mark, Graeme & Huynh. It was an inspiring, simple and dignified liturgy focussing on the Acolyte as the one who lives in service of the altar. Bishop Peter Cullinane received the commitment of the new Acolytes.

Keep them all in your prayer.
