This year, 2017, is a Golden Year for the Ordinariate in the UK because our Feast of Title fell on a Sunday. It was marked with special joy for the Deal mission because Patricia was confirmed as a member of the Ordinariate, having been baptised as a Catholic but then not having completed the rites of initiation until now – a blessing (pray God) for her and certainly a blessing for us.

Patricia leads us in the Creed and is anointed with the Oil of Chrism, supported by her sponsor.
After Mass, Our Lady approves and then we all enjoy a glass of something cool and refreshing – an essential part of Anglican Patrimony!
