Susy will be ordained priest at 3pm on Sunday June 27th. Normally we would take a coach load of people to support Susy and celebrate with her but with social distancing still in force she can only invite a very few people to be with her in in person. The service will be livestreamed and you can support her from your own home. But we have also had the idea of some people gathering in St Mary’s Kidlington to join the livestream and watch together. This might feel more friendly and more of a shared occasion. Now that we have our new wifi in the church we can do this sort of thing. You will need to book but there is plenty of room. Thank you to Scott Cheeseman for volunteering to do the technology for this.
Susy’s first Mass will be the following Wednesday 30th June at 11am in St Mary’s and the preacher will be The Rev’d Lucy Winkett. So do put the date in your diary and come and support her if you can; booking as usual. Following the service the congregation will be invited to stay for a presentation to Susy. Champagne and soft drinks will be served in the churchyard and Susy has asked people to bring their own sandwich lunch to eat together instead of a bring and share lunch which is what we would usually do.
