This PA’s Last Ponderings
23rd July 2020
I am really sad to be writing my last Ponderings as your Pastoral Assistant – I have loved being part of you at Hornsey Parish Church, and I am so grateful for the many things you have done to make me feel welcome and to support me during my time here.
I’ll miss this incredibly kind and loving community. I’ll miss this beautiful church building, the wonderful music, the contemplative atmosphere. I’ll miss the YMCA and the Night Shelter, St Mary’s School and Youth Fellowship. I’ll miss the times of just being with people here and enjoying your company.
I feel very privileged to have spent two years among you and I am hugely grateful to Fr Bruce for taking me on as a Pastoral Assistant, and for being such a generous supervisor and friend. I also thank God for Mthr Anna, Patricia, Nina, Naomi, Trevor, Pam, Jean, Fr Dennis, Debbie and Richard, Ed, Lorraine, and Mitzi, and for everyone with whom it has been my privilege to work and spend time these past two years. Thank you for sharing in many, many joys, and occasional pains, with such a spirit of kindness and care.
