It was quite a splendid affair: there were two archbishops, an abbot, a member of parliament, and lots of priests. Fr Philip has been appointed as assistant priest in St Thomas' Canterbury.
Please do say a prayer for him today.
It is one of the real joys of priesthood to see people develop from childhood into adults and still be strong in the faith that one has tried to impart; still more wonderful when they desire to share that same priesthood.
Ad multos annos, Fr Philip!
That's him on the right (in the unlikely event that you needed to be told), in the very smart Gammarelli cassock.
