Canon Gordon Reid visits us on retirement day 2

Tufton Street welcomed a dear friend and former senior colleague in the Diocese in Europe this week. On Tuesday, the Revd Canon Gordon Reid dropped in to see us, on the 2nd day of his retirement from full-time ministry. He literally presided at his last mass as Rector of St Clement's, Philadelphia, and caught a plane to London, en route to Edinburgh, his home town.

Fr Gordon had a distinguished ministry in this diocese, serving as a priest in Ankara, Stockholm, Milan as well as sometime Dean of Gibraltar and Vicar General of the Diocese.  As he has been a priest for 47 years, so far, it was an occasion for some congratulations.
