On the feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, Oliver Craddock was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood by the Right Reverend Robert Byrne, titular Bishop of Cuncaster and Auxiliary Bishop of Birmingham.

The Holy Mass in the packed church was celebrated in Latin according to the Novus Ordo form of the Roman Rite, with the readings, the  homily and the Ordination itself in English.
