“It has been a unique privilege to serve as your Archbishop”

“Thank you for your support, prayers and collegiality as we have furthered Christ’s mission in our Diocese and beyond. Some of this ministry has been difficult, painful and demanding. At other times, we have been filled with peace and joy in Christ’s service.

Despite these differences everyone in the team treats each other with care and dignity, and openly hears others’ perspectives on difficult issues, working together to understand each other,” says Eleanor Reid from Community of The Way and The Parish of St Lucia
