March 2024 marks 30 years since the first women in the Church of England were ordained as priests. In celebration of this milestone, and in thanksgiving for all God has done through the priestly ministry of women; clergy and congregations from across the Diocese are warmly invited to this special Eucharist.

Women’s Vocations Event

This special service will be preceded by an event, aimed at the vocation of younger women, at 3pm in Cathedral House. This will be an opportunity to gather and encourage the vocation of younger women, who continue to be underrepresented as candidates and ordinands. Supported by the Diocesan Vocations Team, and in the company of Bishop Jane, Dean Jo and Archdeacon Janet, this will be a time of conversation, exploration and input. Clergy are invited to come, accompanying younger women from their context who may have a call to ordained ministry.
