Twenty five years ago I was ordained priest in St Anne's Cathedral, Leeds. Last week I celebrated a Mass of the Anniversary of Ordination at the Bar Convent in York.
I am grateful to the Sisters and the staff of the Convent for the warmth of their hospitality, and I am grateful to all the priests and people, including my family, who joined me for this celebration.
The next few posts will focus on my Silver Jubilee, and thereby enable me to speak about the extraordinary grace of being a priest, and pay tribute and thanks to the many who have supported me, or who have been companions along the way.
Thanks to Peter Jones for the photographs in the post.
