Jennifer, many thanks for your years as a reader.

Jennifer, many thanks for your years as a reader.

At each of St Mary’s services this Sunday we said farewell to Jennifer Sailsbury as a reader. Her journey doesn’t come to an end officially until the 2nd July 2016; however, it was today that Revd Carolyn thanked Jennifer for her many faithful years as a reader and presented her with a beautiful basket of flowers. Revd Carolyn was proud to announce to Jennifer and to us all that in recognition of her many years of work she was awarded the position of Reader Emeritus, which means that at any special church service she can don her robes again. We here at St Mary’s were delighted to welcome some of Jennifer’s friends from St Michaels and All Angels in Gidea Park where she served most of her time as a reader. Jennifer, her family and friends attended the Pentecost Lunch too. What a lovely day we spent together reminiscing and catching up…
