Ordinations

Went to the cathedral yesterday afternoon for 3 ordinations (2 to the deaconate and 1 to the priesthood). Lovely mass setting (Schubert in G) and good sermon by the Rev’d Canon Peter Allen. 7 deacons in the front row and only 6 priests. Why are our clergy not turning out for ordinations, please? And why, when you have 7 deacons plus 2 about-to-be-deacons, did the Dean read the gospel? (Mind you, he did do it beautifully!)
