Evelyne ordained as Priest!

On June 25th, Revd Evelyne Barrow, who has been with us at Christ Church for a year since she was ordained Deacon, was ordained Priest by Bishop Jonathan of Huddersfield, in a moving service at Halifax Minster. She was supported at the service by family, and friends from Christ Church and St. Thomas’. Four other candidates were also priested by Bishop Jonathan. Evelyne presided for her first time at Communion the following day.
