Ryan Black, of the Diocese of Paisley, speaks ahead of his ordination to the diaconate on Sunday 5th May 2019.
On Sunday 5th May 2019, Bishop John Keenan will ordain Ryan Black as a deacon for the Diocese of Paisley. The Ordination Mass will take place at the Pontifical Scots College in Rome, where Ryan has been in formation for the priesthood for six years.
Ryan is a parishioner of St Francis’ parish in Port Glasgow, where he met our own Parish Priest, Fr Joe Balmer. Since Fr Joe came to Neilston, Ryan has been a regular visitor to St Thomas’ parish. Fr Joe recently wrote a Novena Prayer, which our own parish community has been praying ahead of Ryan’s ordination.
Please pray for Ryan as he prepares to be ordained.
