Women’s Ministry

Fifty years ago last month, it became possible for women to be Readers.
Twenty-five years ago this month, Portsmouth Diocese ordained its first women to the Priesthood.  We look forward to and thank God for the ordination of more women and men to the diaconate and priesthood this Petertide.
