The ordination ceremony took place at Salford Royal (Scotland) hospital chapel with the Bishop of Salford and Fr. Graham's relatives in attendence. “He participated fully and was aware of everything that was going on,” according to Cardinal O'Brien. “During the actual ordination, I anointed his hands and seminarian Jeremy Milne put the stole around his neck.”
“You are asked to pray for Graham as he continues his ongoing journey in the priesthood, being an excellent example to all of us in his embracing the Cross of Jesus Christ as he prepares for the glory of the Resurrection,” Cardinal O'Brien said. Sadly, Fr. Graham Turner passed away 1 week after his ordination; he was 48 years old.
