My Ember Card

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,
among them

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 Anthonyโ€™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.
