Priesting of Rev. Fr John Hunwicke

It was our great privilege to be able to attend the priesting of Fr. John Hunwicke on Wednesday 27th June, Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Succour at the Oxford Oratory.  Father has waited long for this great day!

The ordinand lies prostrate whilst the Litany of the Saints is sung.

The laying-on of hands. After the ordaining bishop, all the priests present lay their hands upon the head of the ordinand.  Above, the Rt Revd Monsignor Keith Newton, Fr. Hunwicke's superior in the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham lays hands; and below, Fr. Michael Mary, F.SS.R.

Anointing the hands of the priest. 

First Blessings.

Speaking with Msgr Kieth Newton.
Three generations.  Father and Mrs Hunwicke with the eldest of their five daughters and the eldest of their five grandchildren.

Mais qu'est ce que ça veut dire ?
Tout cela est bien triste.
On pourrait dire que c'est la fin des haricots
