Father Andrew Dawson

Our warmest congratulations and good wishes go to Fr Andrew Dawson, who was ordained to the priesthood in the Cathedral this afternoon. A large number of priests and people were present to mark this joyful day in the life of the Diocese. Fr Andrew is currently based at St Mary's parish, Cleator, where he will preside at Mass for the first time tomorrow. The pictures show Fr Andrew giving his first blessings - a tradition for newly-ordained priests - after the ordination Mass.
