The Reverend Canon Edward Bryant was conditionally ordained by Bishop Roald Nikolai on November 4th and will serve in Hastings East Sussex. He will begin to build an ecumenical oratory in the area in which teaching and prayer will be given for the building and strengthening of Christian life.
After the ordination mass which took place in the Priory of St. Thomas Church at Rugeley with attendance of NCC UK clergy, guests and family, Fr. Edward was given an antimension symbolising the eucharistic bonds between the Bishop and the newly ordained.
The Nordic Catholic Church is grateful for all the support Fr. Edward Bryant has received by friends from Churches in the locality.
Fr. Edward comes to us with a great deal of experience as a priest of the Anglican Church. As a young man he went to the University of Manchester and Goldsmiths college in the University of London. In secular life he has been a teacher and a manager in the telecom industry before his ordination in 1978. He has much pastoral experience in his former diocese of Chichester. Edward Bryant has been a widower for several years with a family of two adult sons and a grandson.
Fr. Geoffrey Neal
