The Reverend Paul Cracknell and the Reverend Stephen Lambert were ordained to the Priesthood on Saturday 18th July 2015 in the Ordinariate Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory, Warwick Street, London, by His Excellency Archbishop Antonio Mennini, the Apostolic Nuncio. The homily was preached by the Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, Monsignor Keith Newton. Fr Paul Cracknell will serve the Harlow Ordinariate Group and Fr Stephen Lambert the Oxford Ordinariate Group. We wish them every blessing in their new ministry as priests of the church.
