Three men from Allen Hall Seminary in the Diocese of Westminster were ordained to priesthood on Saturday 7 July 2012.
Kim Addison, Lorenzo Andreini, and Ivan Millico were ordained by The Most Reverend Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster in a ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.
During his homily, Archbishop Nichols described ordination as an “act of the risen Christ, mediated through the existing office of the Church which itself is in historic continuity with the apostolic beginnings of the early Church.”
One of the three newly ordained priests, Kim Addison who grew up in Zimbabwe described his calling. He said: “There was no road to Emmaus moment, but there was something missing in my life. It was while I was praying for guidance from God that he idea of priesthood surfaced.”
Fr Kim said that he simply wants to serve God and his people and that he has “no idea where that journey will lead me”. He went on: “I only desire to remain faithful to this ministry and I leave the rest of this journey to God who has been ever faithful and ever will be!”
