NINE brothers were re-united for the first time since 1935 when the youngest was ordained to the priesthood on Sunday by Bishop Rudderham of Clifton. Two of the brothers came from the United States, one from Canada, and another from Africa. The newly ordained priest is Fr. S. Marriot, His eldest brother is a missionary Brother working with the Rosminians in Tanganyika.
Sunday's ordination, in St. Peter's Cardiff, was one of the events marking the anniversary of three Cardiff churches all administered by the Rosminian Fathers (St. Peter's, celebrating its centenary: St. Alban's, its golden jubilee and St. Joseph's, its silver jubilee).
Sunday was also the feast day of two priests who were martyred in the parish Blessed John Lloyd and Philip Evans; in their honour, red vestments were worn at the ordination and also at Pr. Marriott's first Mass the same evening.
