Leavers’ Celebrations Video

Each year at Westcott House, we honour our leaving students, who are about to be ordained to the diaconate, with a Eucharist at which their stoles are blessed and handed to them in front of the community. In a sense it acts as both a commissioning from the Community, and an opportunity for those in ministry who have nurtured the leavers through their formation to welcome them (a few weeks early) into the family of priests and deacons in the Anglican Church. Here is a short video of the procession and garden party following:
