Andrew Ward Licensed as Diocesan Reader

     

Three years of religious training finally paid off for Andrew Ward on Wednesday 17 July 2019 as he was licensed and admitted as a Diocesan Reader.

Nearly 70 friends and family gathered at St Matthew’s Church, Northampton for a special mass conducted by The Rt Revd Donald Allister, Bishop of Peterborough.

Bishop Donald, assisted by St Matthew’s vicar, The Revd Canon Nicholas Setterfield, presented Andrew with his licensing certificate, a ceremonial blue scarf and a personal bible.


Andrew’s wife Caroline read from the book of Exodus during the 45 minute service.

Bishop Donald noted how ironic it was that no sooner had Andrew gained his licence than he and Caroline were moving from St Matthew’s to pastures new. The Lord does indeed move in mysterious ways!

Fr Nicholas said a special thank you to St Matthew’s catering team who laid on a sumptuous lunch for everyone in the parish centre.
