The Curate spreads her wings!

Sunday 19th April was Karen Rizzello’s last Sunday with us as she moves to a “House for Duty” part-time post as a priest in the benefice of Lyneham & Woodhill.  She was licensed in an online “Zoom” service on the 26th April – a mark of the strange times we’re living through!
We all owe Karen a huge debt for the contribution she has made to our parish during the time she has been here as Curate – most notably, her roles in establishing “Cake & Company” and “Little Fishes”.  Having completed her training curacy, it was inevitable that she’d be seeking a more permanent post in which to exercise her ministry – but we’re deeply grateful that she has helped see us through both Christmas and Easter without Simon!  Hopefully, we’ll soon be able to appoint a new Team Rector, and the clergy team will be back up to full strength again.
We wish her every blessing in her new ministry – she will most certainly be a blessing to them, as she has been to us!  We’d hoped to take formal leave of her on the 19th April, when she was due to lead a Team Service with Bishop Andrew, with refreshments and a presentation.  This was, of course, unfortunately not possible because of the lockdown, but we hope that she will come back later so that we can thank her properly. 

If you would like to contribute to a leaving gift to Karen, please send contributions by cheque to the Team Office.
