In Lincolnshire, on 3rd September, Bishop Roald Nikolai formally received the first five priests into the Nordic Catholic Church in a Service of Incardination. The form of this Service included Conditional Ordination, but in such a manner as to be both appropriate within, and approved by, the Union of Scranton. This specially constructed Rite took place in the presence of the Prime Bishop of the Union of Scranton, The Most Reverend Anthony Mikovsky. Three Anglican priests were conditionally ordained; and two, from other denominations, were ordained absolutely.
The liturgy took place in the beautiful Chapel of Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire with the gracious consent of Lady Willoughby d’Eresby, and in the presence of invited guests.
