Start of a Journey
Church News | Saturday, 25 June 2016 |
It was a wonderful service at Chelmsford Cathedral today, 25th June, for Revd. Julie Hardy when she was ordained Deacon along with a group of about 12 others. Revd’s Carolyn and Anne attended the service and were able to have this lovely photo taken between sunny periods and heavy showers of rain. Revd Julie came back to St Marys accompanied by her family and many of her friends from her previous church at South Woodham Ferrers. There had been a lovely reception set up in St Leonard’s Hall to welcome Julie to St Mary’s where she will spend the next few years learning and practicing the art and skills of a fully ordained minister. We here at St Mary’s were delighted to welcome Julie and her family and it was wonderful to see her family and friends enjoying her happy day. But like everything else in life, things come to an end and Julie had to knuckle down and help clear up after most of her family and friends had left… Oh dear!
