Albert - Candidate for Holy Orders

On Wednesday 3 July, Albert Lawes (on the right) who is a seminarian from Salisbury who is currently studying at The Venerable English College, Rome, reached another important milestone in his journey towards priesthood.  Albert was admitted as a Candidate for Holy Orders which means that, God-willing, he will be ordained as a deacon later this year and priest next year.


Albert was admitted to Candidacy by Archbishop Charles Scicluna (Malta) along with seminarian Andrew Coy of the Northampton Diocese.  The special Mass was held at Villa Palazzola, the former Franciscan Monastery owned by The English College which overlooks Lake Albano in the Alban Hills, 18 miles from the centre of Rome.
