The ordination of deacons will be Bishop Nicholas’ last ordination in Blackburn Cathedral as he retires from the role of Bishop of Blackburn later in the year. There will be a record-breaking 16 men and women ordained deacon to serve around the diocese.

On Wednesday, those to be ordained deacon had a rehearsal in the cathedral, wearing their brand new clerical shirts and cassocks.  They have now gone into retreat at Whalley Abbey.
