"The Service in Lincoln Cathedral was a great occasion, where we welcomed six new Readers to share in our ministry and also a good opportunity to catch up with colleagues from across the Diocese, During the service, a beautiful new embroided frontal - incorporating the Reader logo badge and our ministry in the church and the world, was placed on the altar. Well done to colleagues Naomi Smith and Maureen Kendall who were inspired and lovingly embroidered it".
