Photos from the 2015 Cork, Cloyne and Ross Ordinands’ Retreat at Mirfield

Each year, candidates for ordination in Cork, Cloyne and Ross travel to the Community of the Resurrection in Mirfield, West Yorkshire for their pre-ordination retreat.  In 2014 the Bishops of the Church of Ireland also went there on retreat together.

This year’s candidates – the Reverend David Compton, who was ordained Deacon on Sunday last, 20th September, and the Reverend David Bowles, who is to be ordained priest on Friday, 25th September (St Fin Barre’s Day) – travelled to Mirfield in the company of the parish clergy who will be responsible for their on-going training: Canon Paul Willoughby and the Venerable Adrian Wilkinson, Archdeacon of Cork.  They were on retreat from 14th to 18th September.
