Two Readers from the Diocese receive the Royal Maundy money

Angela Mirani and Celia Paterson
Two Readers (Licenced Lay Ministers) of our Diocese in Europe will be enjoying a very special Easter this year. Angela Mirani, Reader in St John the Baptist Church, Varese, Italy and Celia Paterson, Reader in St George's Church, Madrid, were honoured by Her Majesty the Queen as recipients of the Royal Maundy money last Thursday, in St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

In addition to their long service to their own congregations, Angela and Celia play vital roles within their own respective Archdeaconries, and have served the wider Church also at Diocesan and international levels. 

Angela said in an email to me: "It was an amazing day: the service was beautiful and the music superb. A very emotional time". 

Warm congratulations to you both from across the Diocese, and Happy Easter!
