A Royal Priesthood

As the Church of England prepares to mark the 20th anniversary of the ordination of women to the priesthood, Diane Louise Jordan considers what it means for all Christians to be called to a "Royal Priesthood".

Among those providing the music in this week's programme are Geraldine Latty and Belfast-based Robin Mark.

Diane reveals some surprises about a friend who's a priest in a church whose patch includes Benefit Street. And of course there's time for listeners' dedications and requests for prayer.

Producer - Steven Benson.
