FOUR new faces will soon be seen at churches across the area after an ordination ceremony at St Cuthbert's Church in Darwen.

The men gathered for a rehearsal before the big day on Saturday when the 6.30pm ceremony will be conducted by the Bishop of Burnley, the Rt Rev John Goddard.

They were Jonathan Brown from the Accrington team ministry; Paul Darlington, of All Hallows, Bispham; Nicholas Davis of St Cuthbert's, Darwen; and Graham Halsall, former warden of St Cuthbert's who is now based at Preston Parish Church.

Fr Peter McEvitt of St Cuthbert's Church, said: "It is a great pleasure and honour to host something so important in the life of the diocese."
