We are to welcome Kathreen Shabaz as an Ordinand on placement with us for the next 3 years.  During that time she will undergo her training for the Priesthood as was the case with Jackie Calow.  Kathreen will then be ordained Deacon and placed in a parish for post ordination training and to serve her Curacy, like Steven Nolan a couple of years ago.
