A celebration of Rev’d Judith’s 30 years as an ordained Deacon

In her usual modesty, Rev’d Judith has hardly made anything of a very significant anniversary which we this week with a Mass of Thanksgiving followed by lunch in the Community Centre.

Rev’d Judith has been ordained a Deacon for 30 years, and a priest for 25 of them – she was among the very first women to be ordained in the Church of England and she has spent 27 of those years at St Michael’s. She has been an amazing pioneer of women’s ordination and she is still going strong!
