Celia Paterson: A New Reader for St George's Madrid


Celia Paterson was recently admitted to the office of Reader in the Church of England, by the Area Dean of Gibraltar, the Revd Canon Hugh Broad. Celia is licensed to the parish of St George's Madrid, where she will be working under the chaplain, the Revd Canon Ian Hutchinson-Cervantes, and with the Assistant Curate, the Revd Nigel Thomas. They are pictured above, left to right: Deacon Nigel, Fr Hugh, Celia, Fr Ian.

Celia was a member of the design team which planned the first Diocesan Readers' Conference which begins this Friday 15 June, in Cologne, Germany. They are shown, hard at work, in the photo below.

We look forward to congratulating Celia personally at the conference, and wish her God's blessing as she begins her licensed ministry in St George's, Madrid.
