The Bishop of the Diocese of Lagos West (Anglican Communion), The Rt. Revd Dr James Olusola Odedeji ordained nine new deacons and six new priests at a colourful ceremony of Trinity Ordination held at Anglican Church of the Ascension, Opebi, Lagos today.

The Venerable Olaoluwa Adeyemi, the Archdeacon of Ikorodu and the Principal of Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary Ikorodu, who preached at the service told the 15 men to see themselves as sheep been sent into the midst of wolves.
