As ordination and admission to Holy Orders approaches at Petertide it’s traditional to send Ember Cards, asking people to pray for the candidate, their family, the priest they will be working and training with in their new churches, and the people of those churches.
I’m mainly sending my Ember Card virtually via this blog in a small attempt to reduce the pressure on the environment. Here it is:
Please pray for all to be admitted
to Holy Orders this Petertide,
Anthony Richard Bennett
to be made Deacon by
The Rt Revd Nick Baines,
Bishop of Leeds
in Wakefield Cathedral
at 3:00 pm
on Saturday 29th June 2019
Please also pray for Anthony’s family,
for the Revd Peter Mullins,
and the people of the benefice of
Haworth and Cross Roads-cum-Lees,
where Anthony is to serve
as Assistant Curate.

Keighley Shared Church, Wednesday 17th April 7.45-9 15pm, including Compline (Night Prayer).
No need to book, just come along to hear my reflections on my recent pilgrimage to the Holy Land, meditate on scripture as we approach Easter, and pray together as we celebrate the beautiful liturgy of Compline (Night Prayer). For further info please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the darkness of our sin, your light breaks forth like the dawn and your healing springs up for deliverance. As we rejoice in the gift of your saving help, sustain us with your bountiful Spirit and open our lips to sing your praise. Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
