Ordination of Fr. David Rocks OP

Yesterday Father David Rocks OP was ordained priest by Bishop George Stack, auxiliary bishop of the archdiocese of Westminster. The ordination took place at the priory church of Our Lady of the Rosary and Saint Dominic, Southampton Road in London. David was joined by the Provincials of the Irish and English provinces, his community, and many brothers of the both provinces along with his family and friends.

Father David will celebrate Mass in the Dominican church of Saint Catherine of Siena, Newry, Co. Down on Monday next. Below are some images of the presbyteral ordination today.
