Donors in February

Once again SEI’s Training Fund has benefitted from receiving deputising fees which would otherwise have been paid to the Revd Sally Gorton, Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway. We thank Sally and the charges she has served in the past two months: All Saints Bearsden, St Oswald’s Kingspark and St Cuthbert’s Cambuslang (all Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway).

Warm thanks are also extended to the congregation of St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral, Aberdeen, (Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney) for the generous donation received following the ordination of the Revd Andrew Elliott. Andrew was ordained Deacon to serve his Title in Shetland within the charges of St Magnus, Lerwick and St Colman’s, Yell.

The money received in these ways goes directly to supporting students training full-time via New College or the Mixed Mode pathway. Currently there are three candidates on these pathways. Donations to this Fund are always gratefully received; please use the contact page on the web site if you’d like to know more about how to go about doing so.

Similarly the Training Fund has benefitted from receiving pastoral supervision fees that would otherwise have been paid to the Revd Canon Robin Paisley, Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway. In thanking the anonymous donor, we also thank Canon Paisley for his immense generosity.

We are also extremely grateful to the Revd Richard Kilgour, Rector of Holy Trinity, Motherwell and St Andrew’s, Wishaw (Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway) for the delivery to the General Synod Office of a superb collection of recent theological books, mainly on liturgical theology. This is a most timely donation as SEI prepares to deliver an MA in Worship and Liturgical Studies from the autumn. We thank Richard most warmly for this thoughtful and generous gift.
