TWO new monks have been ordained at a Ryedale abbey.

The feast of Saint Peter and Paul was celebrated at Ampleforth Abbey with the ordination of two monks as priests by the Bishop of Middlesbrough, the Rt Rev Terence Patrick Drainey.

Br Columba Moujing, a native of Malaysia, joined the Benedictine community at Ampleforth in 2003, and Br Cedd Mannion, joined in 2007.

A large number of family and friends attended the mass, including a good number of Fr Columba’s family and relations who had flown from Malaysia.
