SPECIAL SERVICE MARKING 25 YEARS SINCE THE FIRST ORDINATIONS OF WOMEN AS PRIESTS IN THE SCOTTISH EPISCOPAL CHURCH, held at        St Ninian's Cathedral, Perth on saturday 14th december 2019.

The Cathedral was at its very best on Saturday 14th December, 2019, with so many people from across Scotland coming to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Ordination of women to the Priesthood. It was an honour to welcome many of the “first women”, some of the bishops who ordained them, together with the College of Bishops and clergy and people from every diocese, to give thanks for “whole ministry” in the Church.

   

the white roses are in honour of the women who were the first to be ordained priest, in 1994, but are no longer with us.
