Former Savio Salesian Assistant Head to be ordained Deacon
Posted: Thu, 23 Jul 2020 11:26
Michael Bennett, author of our 'Catholic teacher' series of articles, will be ordained Deacon on Sunday 26 July, at the Salesian parish of St James' Bootle, Liverpool.
Mike was for many years Head of RE and Associate Assistant Headteacher at Savio Salesian College, Bootle, and is now Deputy Head of School at De La Salle, Croxteth, near Liverpool.
In more 'normal' times, the Salesian Family would be packing the church to support, celebrate and pray with Mike, but as numbers are restricted right now, the parish is live-streaming the Mass, so we can all be there in spirit. To join the celebration on Sunday, go to the St James' parish Facebook page (linked below), or visit their website and sign up for news to get updates on how you can see the Mass.
Congratulations Michael, and many blessings as you begin your new ministry!
Update: The video of the Mass and album of photos are now here on St James' parish website.
