The congregations of both Greyfriars and St Mary’s celebrated the arrival and institution of our new rector Reverend Stephen Hazlett on the 29th September. There was a joint service which started at Greyfriars at 10am and concluding at 11am at St Mary’s. The Service was led by The Right Reverend Dr Gregor Duncan assisted by the Reverend Canon Drew Sheridan, the Bishop’s Chaplain. We were blessed with a number of visiting clergy, and Father William McFadden and Rev’d Val Ott were the ecumenical presenters in each of the church services. After the service we had a joyful celebration lunch in Gatehouse at the Community Centre.
We are so pleased to welcome Stephen and his wife Hazel and their family to our communities.
