Father Matthew’s Ordination & First Mass

On the 30th July 2018 The West Hereford Team welcomed the ordination of their Assistant Curate – Father Matthew Cashmore – to the Priesthood.

It was a wonderful day, full of colour and life. Matthew was joined by many of his friends, family and parishioners to wish him luck on this next stage of ministry.

Matthew was ordained Priest by the Bishop of Hereford, the Right Reverend Richard Frith alongside his fellow Deacons, Rachel Robertson, Sam Mann and Clive Munday.

On the 1st July Matthew celebrated his First Mass at St. Nicholas Church. The order of service can be downloaded as a PDF here. He was joined at the altar by Father Robert Church who was ordained Priest in Gloucester the day before and who Deaconed for Matthew.
