Anthony takes a step closer to priesthood

Seminarian Anthony Asomugha received the Ministry of Acolyte on 26 October at a service at Allen Hall in Chelsea.

Anthony, from St John’s Cathedral in Norwich, is now in his fifth year at seminary, and is due to be ordained Deacon in June of next year.

He and his family came to the UK in 2006 from Lagos, Nigeria, and settled in London. In 2011 he went to Norwich to study Economics at the University of East Anglia. He attended Mass regularly at the UEA chaplaincy and the Cathedral and came to love the city. Towards the end of his degree he applied for priestly formation for the Diocese of East Anglia, was accepted and started seminary in 2014.
