I was pleased to read that Richard Marsden, whose blog is entitled Bashing Secularism, had been accepted as a candidate for priesthood in the Diocese of Middlesbrough.
Richard, who hales from Hull, graduated at the University of Sheffield and is currently employed as a journalist. He particularly interested in and a campaigner for life issues.
This is very good news for the Diocese of Middlesbrough, where the decline in the number of priests over the last decade or so has been more marked than in most other dioceses.
