Yesterday Roy Cavey was ordained a deacon for the Ordinariate alongside three other men being ordained deacon for the Archdiocese of Southwark. This means we now have two deacons in Pembury which is wonderful news and a real blessing to us. Rob & Roy..sounds a bit Scottish to me.
This morning Deacon Roy assisted at the altar for both our 9:15am and 11am Mass. We prayed for him at those services and asked that God would enable him to proclaim the Gospel not only with his lips but also by the example of a life of authentic holiness. He will be mentored this year by Deacon Rob who has been a close friend of his for many years. Both are married men with young families.
