On Friday 6 May 2011 6 former Anglican priests were ordained as Transitional Deacons in the Catholic Church.  Gordon Adam, Peter Andrews, Tim Bugby, Antony Homer, James Patrick and Mark Elliott Smith were ordained by Bishop Alan Hopes at Our Lady of Victories Church in Kensington.

Those ordained will be ordianed as priests at Pentecost. Each belongs to a group of clergy and lay people who aim to form personal parishes as part of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. The three groups at the moment are from Hemel Hempstead, North London (Enfield) and Central London.
