Quality Cards For Ordination 

There will be Ordination Cards for everyone in our secure online store. We have one of the largest ranges of quality cards on the internet with relevant Scripture text and symbolic designs.

Many of our cards are A5 size, so a bit bigger than the normal size, and they have a special quality about them, befitting of such an important occasion in the life of a priest. Some have ribbon detail and most have colour picture inserts that match the fronts, to make them look really special. So, if you are looking for quality cards for ordination for a friend or family member then you have come to the right place!

Ordination of Priests During Lockdown

2020 was a difficult time and some ordinations were postponed throughout the world. It was a challenging time for all and the planned celebrations for the future priests were not going to take place amidst the usual, large congregations of friends, family and fellow church members. Father Evan Ponton was one such priest in waiting and his acceptance was so heartfelt. He stated:
Due to the lockdown of 2020, I realised the date and circumstances of my ordination were beyond anyone’s control. Some suggested having small, private ordinations so we would become priests “sooner,” even if we still couldn’t yet go out and serve in parishes, but respectfully, I personally disagreed with that idea. The pandemic re-affirmed my conviction that we were becoming priests for the people of God, not for ourselves. Compared with the physical and emotional toll of the pandemic, the waiting game was an easy burden to bear.
