Ordination of New Curate: Tim Vickers

On Sunday 3 July a coachload from St Mary’s went to St Albans for the ordination of their new Curate, Tim Vickers.

In front of a packed congregation of around 2000 worshippers, Tim was ordained by the Bishop of St Albans in a moving and uplifting service to formally begin his time of ministry amongst us for the next three years.

There was an added joy to the celebrations as Mary Fisher was also ordained, who has been a valued part of our congregation until starting her training for ministry in Oxford.

Both Tim and Mary will return to the Cathedral in 12 months time to be ordained as priests, no doubt with similarly joyful celebrations and rejoicing.
