On Gaudete Sunday, the third Sunday of Advent 2017, members of the Deal Mission of the Ordinariate welcomed new member the Rev. Ian Shackleton.
After many years ministering to our separated brothers and sisters, Ian decided that it was time to seek the fullness of communion in the Catholic Church, through the auspices of the Ordinariate in East Kent.
Ian was received and confirmed by Mission Pastor Fr Christopher Lindlar and sponsored by Deal Mission member Paul Harrison.
