Statement by Father Peter Scorer after his ordination to the priesthood at St Anne’s Church, Exeter, on 1st February 2020

I stand here before you with fear and trepidation. I also stand here with hope and love. We have just now celebrated the divine Eucharist, which is above all the prayer of Thanksgiving, and I now want to give thanks. But there are so many people I need to thank that we may stay here all afternoon and you will never get to your food.
