Default Prayers for Scotlandís newest priest who is critically ill

Scotlandís newest priest was ordained at short notice on Easter Monday at a Greater Manchester hospital after his treatment for leukaemia failed.

Fr Graham Turnerís ordination was postponed last June after he was diagnosed and doctors began aggressive treatment. When Cardinal Keith OíBrien heard during Holy Week that the prognosis was bleak for the critically ill deacon of St Maryís Cathedral in Edinburgh, he appealed for prayers at the Chrism Mass and plans to ordain him for St Andrews and Edinburgh Archdiocese were revived.

Despite the deaconís physical frailty, he was ordained by Cardinal OíBrien at 2pm on Monday in the chapel at Salford Royal in the presence of Mgr Michael Regan, St Maryís Cathedral administrator and Fr Turnerís parish priest, Mgr Rod Strange, Rector of the Pontifical Beda College in Rome, Fr Turnerís parents George and Marilyn, brother, Ian, sister, Sue, and clergy friends from Salford Diocese and St Andrews and Edinburgh Archdiocese.
