Cardinal George Pell is to ordain 10 men as deacons for the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham next month.
The group includes two men who are in their fifth year of studies for the priesthood and are on course to become the first clergy who have undertaken their entire formation within the ordinariate.
The other eight men are former Anglican priests who have taken a specially designed two-year course.
It is likely the 10 candidates will be ordained to the priesthood next year. They will join 80 clergy serving 50 ordinariate groups in England, Wales and Scotland.
