"Believe what you read, teach what you believe, and practice what you teach."

On Monday 11th February our brother Gerard (Ged) Walsh was ordained for ministry in the Church as a Deacon.

By the imposition of hands and prayer Terence Drainey, Bishop of Middlesborough ordained Ged during mass at the Carmelite Monastery in Thicket.  The sisters in Thicket have always been great friend with the Carmelites and were delighted to host this celebration.  Surrounded by his parents, his Carmelite Sisters and Brethers, clergy from the local church, friends and students from York University Ged was clothed in the vestments of the Deacon, given the book of Gospels and assisted at the altar accompanied by music by the sister and prayers of the community gathered..  The liturgical celebration was rounded off by a social gathering hosted by the Carmelite Sisters.
