Two months ago, Fr Paul was in conversation with Lee, asking him to consider joining the permanent diaconate programme in the diocese. Last Friday at an interview with a selection panel, Lee was accepted and recommended to begin his training. He will now begin his propaedeutic year and work in our parish alongside Fr Paul. Four further years of training are then required before ordination as a permanent deacon. This is wonderful news for Lee and the parish! Many congratulations to Lee. Please keep him in your prayers during this time of formation and discernment. Lee’s Email is
