WATERMEAD STORY The picture on the front of this card is from a water colour painting produced by Hazel Holmes-Taylor to celebrate the 50th anniversary of ordination of her parish preist, Fr Terry Fellows . The hymn wording printed inside this card is 'Gathering' and the hymn was one commissioned by a parish for the jubilee anniversary of their priest - lyrics written to reflect Eucharistic Prayer no.III. ORDINATION The Sacrament of Ordination is when an individual is consecrated as deacon, priest or bishop, enabling them to serve their Church as clergy in performing various religious rites and ceremonies. The duration and required study for ordination, along with the ceremony, depends on the particular Christian denomination. (The noun ordination comes from the Latin word ordinare, meaning “put in order.”) THE SACRAMENTS The Christian journey is marked by special moments of God’s blessing called Sacraments. There are seven: Baptism (Christening), Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist (Holy Communion), Penance (Confession/Reconciliation), the Anointing of the Sick (formerly termed Last Rites), Holy Orders (Priesthood and Religious life) and Matrimony (Marriage) - linking the stages of human life with the stages of the spiritual life.
