|Brother John Mary Jesus with children in Ivory Coast.|
July 2nd fourteen priests and seven deacons will be ordained for the Community of Saint John in the Basilica of Sainte Madeleine, Vézelay, France, by His Excellency Bishop Benoît RIVIÈRE
Bishop of Autun, Chalon and Mâcon. Among those being ordained priest is my cousin's son (which makes him my second cousin) Brother John Mary Jesus (in the world Simon) Ashfield.
I remember attending Brother JMJ's first profession at Vézelay many years ago. A large number of other brothers made their profession with him.
The Community of Saint John is one of those new orders that continues to attract young vocations.
Sadly I shall not be able to attend the ordinations as from July 1st I take the reigns at St Anthony's parish in Gwinn.
Here are the names of the ordinands for your prayers.
