On Sunday 11th September 2022, Revd. Adam Norris who was ordained as a Priest for local ministry by Bishop Ferran Glenfield at a service held in St. John’s Cathedral, Sligo. He will be serving in the Sligo Cathedral Group of Churches.
Revd. Adam says that his call to Ordained Ministry originated as a young boy in a Kenyan boarding school that had a very strong Christian ethos. There, a foundation for his faith was laid and has been built upon in fits and starts over the years as he grew up – at times rebelling and then being called back to God. It is over the past 20 or so years that ad opened doors and given him the opportunities to become first a Parish, then Diocesan Reader serving in his own Parish group in Sligo and in the wider Diocese. Speaking of his ordination Revd. Adam says ‘I know in my heart that God has been leading me on that path to Ordained Ministry, a ministry of worship. Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” (Mt 18:20) I know that was not said in the context of worship, but it is in my heart that even if there are only two or three who have gathered for worship, I am ready to enable and to lead that worship because Jesus himself will be among us.
Congratulations to Revd. Adam on his ordination. We pray for him and his family as he continues his ministry.
