Archbishop accepts new man for formation

Having recently celebrated the 51st annual World Day of prayer for Vocations the Archdiocese of Cardiff is pleased to announce some good news.


Following a period of discernment and having successfully completed the stages of application, Archbishop George has accepted Elliot Hanson, a parishioner of Barry, for formation to the priesthood. Elliot has been studying foreign languages at the University of Southampton.  During his time in study he has spent time abroad and has also worked as an English teacher in France.  He has yet to find out which seminary he will attend when he starts his formation in September.

Please keep Elliot and our other five seminarians in your prayers.  Formation is a long period of discernment and preparation that demands a lot both personally and spiritually of our seminarians.  Your prayers and encouragement make a difference to these men who are trying to discern he will of God in their lives.
