The Revd David Butler recently took temporary vows as a hermit within the Ordinariate and an article about his way of life will appear in the February edition of Oremus, the Westminster Cathedral magazine. The Revd James Houghton, a former member of the General Synod of the Church of England, will be ordained to the priesthood by Archbishop Peter Smith in a few weeks. Both men are former Anglican clergymen. Please keep these new deacons in your prayers.

The photos were taken by a friend of one of the new deacons, who also happens to work for the Friends of the Ordinariate.
