A prayer card can be downloaded here to aid the whole diocese to pray for all of those who are going to be ordained, whether they are based in your parishes or not.

Bishops Martyn and Guli will share in the leading of these services, and the preacher will be the Rt Revd Dr Graham Kings (former bishop of Sherborne), who will also conduct the ordination retreat. Congregation sizes for these services will be restricted to thirty people (following government guidance). Unfortunatly most people will not be able to be physically present for these services to support the ordinands but it is expected that the services will be livestreamed for anyone to watch on our YouTube channel here.
