15 new priests and 1 new diakon.

Yesterday we hade the privilege of being at the Storkyrka and attending the ceremony where 15 new priests and a diakon were blessed at the start of their new career, and welcomed by the bishop of Stockholms Stift in their "new family".
The ceremony was special not only due to the large number of the priests but mainly because it was the last time for the bishop of leading this ceremony as she is going to be retired soon and the already new elected bishop will continue next time.

Big applauds erupted when the bishop asked the public to welcome the new members of the church!

In the end everyone of the new priests was photographed alone together with Caroline Krook, and also a group photo was taken with everybody included.

More photos can be seen here.
