Path to the Priesthood with Deacon James Barber 

Deacon James Barber is due to be ordained on the 22nd of June, at Plymouth Cathedral. His passage through seminary and experience within the Diocese of Plymouth has been a true journey and we speak to him one week prior to his ordination and the beginning of his priestly life. This will be a major celebration in the life of the Cathedral and the Diocese of Plymouth so is sure to be a great and faithful day.
