Reverend Biddy Saunders Priested

5 Oct 2021, 11:30 a.m.

Barkby's Curate, Reverend Biddy Saunders was priested together her colleagues Crystal MacAllister and Paul Emberton on Saturday 2nd October 2021. The service took place in Syston Parish Church and was led by Bishop Martin. The location was quite unusual as these services generally take place in the cathedral. However as Leicester Cathedral is closed for renovations it was decided to take the services to three local parish churches. Due to Covid attendance was by ticket only and Covid restrictions applied regarding mask wearing and hand sanitising. Biddy recalled that throughout her life she always felt that God was at work blessing, enriching and preparing me for a life dedicated to those in need. She has been constantly reminded of God's faithfulness.

Reverend Biddy wishes to thank everyone who has supported her in God's ministry. Reverend Biddy hopes to continue her work within the parish of Barkby together with the spiritual growth and discipleship of St Mary's Church
