There was a rehearsal this morning in All Saints’, Gainsborough for the Ordination on Sunday of five Deacons to serve in parishes in the northern half of the diocese. Between them they have a range of musical taste: one is a former Head of Trusts and Foundations at the Royal Opera House (she will be Curate in Gainsborough itself) and another is a Heavy Metal fan (she is the one who will be Curate with us). Our parish is in the nice position of both ‘giving’ and ‘receiving’ a Curate at the same service since a member of St Nicolas’, Great Coates is also in the picture as she prepares to be Curate in Skegness. A similar batch of five is being ordained at Sleaford to serve in south of the diocese, and no less than sixteen of last year’s Deacons will be ordained Priest in the Cathedral at the same time.
