Two of our seminarians, Bobby Taylor and Martin Eckersley, will be ordained to the diaconate on Saturday.

The ceremony, to take place at St Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh with Archbishop Cushley, was previously postponed twice due to Covid-19.

Bobby, of Galashiels, and Martin, of Jedburgh, appeared in this year's popular BBC Scotland documentary Priest School, where they spoke at length about their vocation. The diaconate is their final step in the journey to priesthood.

Arcbishop Cushley is asking that we keep both men in our prayers ahead of Saturday.

Priest School is available to watch on the BBC iPlayer. Click here.
