Easter Day Ordination at St James Kerikeri

Easter Day Ordination at St James Kerikeri. Bishop Jim was presider and preacher. The church was packed for both the Celebration of the Resurrection and the  ordination of  Pam Harrison-Boyd to the (transitional) Diaconate. Currently the clergy team is seriously girl-powered, assisted by the fact that three of them are Aussie Sheilas (Shirley, far left, Pam, behind Bishop Jim, and Pat between Pam & me (Ian). Also featured (from left) are Barbara (Pastoral Care, next to Shirley), Sandy (Priest), Yvonne (Vocational Deacon), Fiona (Transitional Deacon) and Flip (Worship Co-ordinator, below me). It was a beautiful morning for the service, and then it hosed down when we were enjoying a shared lunch.
