The new vicar of Holbeach is inviting everyone in the community to come to her induction service at All Saints Church next Monday.
The Rev Rosamund Seal said: “It’s an open service and anyone who’d like to come along is very welcome.”
Bishop Christopher of Lincoln is making his first visit to the town to conduct the service and Archdeacon Tim Barker will be in attendance.
Mrs Seal and her family will continue to live at Moulton Vicarage in her previous parish awaiting the completion of the new vicarage at Holbeach in September, so she’ll continue to commute the few miles to her new job.
Her first Sunday service will be on February 3 and as it’s on Candlemas which celebrates the boy Jesus’ recognition by the elders in the Temple, she’s asking children to bring their grandparents and older relatives and friends along, and vice versa.
She said: “It’s about the important relationship between older people and children.”
