Diane Armstrong, attached to St Mary's for several months last year as a Reader in training, has now jumped through all the hoops and satisfied the church authorities that she is ready for formal licensing as a Reader. Her licensing, originally planned for November, took place on Saturday 19th December at Haydon Bridge.
During her attachment at St Mary's, Diane played a full part in the life of our church, from participation in Sunday services to social events like the Burns Supper. Our PCC has sent a message of congratulations and good wishes to her. Do pray for her as she formally enters the ministry of Readership.
