Video: Ordination of Deacons and priests

On Saturday 29 June, we gathered at Llandaff Cathedral for the Ordination of Deacons and Priests. At this truly joyous occasion, Bishop June Osborne conducted the ordinations and Bishop John Gladwin preached an inspiring sermon.

Ordinands were blessed with gorgeous weather and a Cathedral packed with family, friends and well-wishers – all of which ensured they had a truly memorable experience.
