The Reverend Lorraine Ridout, Priest Assistant in the Parish of Whanganui, has tendered her resignation to Bishop Justin and Bishop Eleanor. Lorraine’s last day in the parish was Sunday 2 September. After a long ministry as a lay person in various locations, Lorraine was ordained in 2010 and served in the former parish of Castlecliff, and latterly in the parish of Whanganui.
Lorraine and her husband John are going to spend time with family in Australia. We wish them all the best for their next season of ministry.
