New Tutorial Staff appointment
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Preb Dr Catherine Wright as Tutor in Christian History and Spirituality and Dean of Women.
Catherine trained for ministry at Ridley Hall and currently serves as Diocesan Director of Ordinands and Dean of Women Clergy in Bath and Wells Diocese. She will take up her appointment in September. She writes:
"It has been a surprise to find that obedience to God’s call brings me back to the place where I began my ordination training in 1994 – the year that women were first ordained priest in the Church of England.
I move from Somerset, where I have enjoyed encouraging the vocations of women and men as DDO, with responsibility for curate training, and also as Dean of Women Clergy. With a background in medieval studies, I am looking forward to sharing with you the ways that our Christian history and spiritual heritage inform our present and offer us possibility for the future."
