Last week the Archbishop of Canterbury announced this year’s recipients of 32 Lambeth Awards for outstanding contributions to the Church and wider society. It was wonderful to see that the Langton Award for Community Service was given to Mother Jennifer Anne Goodeve for her ‘outstanding leadership skills in transforming a Victorian convent into a modern nursing home and driving forward change for over thirty years.’
She is better known to us at St Nick’s as ‘Sister Jennifer’ of St Mary’s Convent and we are delighted to see that her tremendous work in our parish has been recognised in this way. We offer her our warmest congratulations!
It was very moving for those of us who were able to be back in church on Sunday to say Mass together, albeit socially distanced. We remember, however, members of our congregation who are still having to isolate at home and hope it will not be too long before they too are able to return to church. In the meantime it is good that those who have Internet access can join us online.
With every blessing
