The Revd Hazel Door: New Chaplain of Good Shepherd Poitou-Charentes

Archdeacon Letts and the Revd Hazel Door
On Saturday 28thJanuary 2012 in the Church of St Nicholas, Civray the Revd Hazel Door was licenced as the new Chaplain of the Church of Christ the Good Shepherd, Poitou-Charentes by the Anglican Archdeacon of France, the Venerable Kenneth Letts. Hazel had previously been an assistant curate in the parish, following on ordination. She then served as priest-in-charge of Christ Church Brittany from 2007 to 2010 before returning to Poitou-Charentes to take up the post of Assistant Chaplain in 2010. When the then chaplain, the Revd Michael Hepper left in 2011 to take up a new parish back in England, Hazel applied for the senior post and was appointed.

We pray for her new ministry, which, although back on her "home turf", now carries enhanced responsibilities, including the coordination of a ministry team of priests and readers who offer services and pastoral care in this vast area. The parish covers 4 departments in western France!

Their website is here.
