Reverend Andrea Wills was introduced as Priest with Special Pastoral and Liturgical Responsibilities by Bishop Patrick Rooke during a Service of the Word in Foxford on 4th October

The church in Foxford, parish of Straide, occupies a striking position on the main street of the village. On the night of Andrea’s introduction it was filled to capacity with colleagues, parishoners, friends, visitors and dignitaries from near and far. Their purpose was ask God’s blessing on Revd. Andrea and to affirm her in a role which she has filled for many years.

Revd. Canon Kathy Trimbey led the service. The Dean of Tuam, Killala and Achonry, Very Revd. Alistair Grimason, presented Andrea to the Bishop who then proceeded with The Charge and led the congregation in intercession for her and for her ministry. The preacher was Very Revd. Tom Gordon, Dean of Leighlin, who had been Andrea’s tutor in CITI.

As well as oversight of Foxford, Revd. Andrea will also have responsibility for the new expression of Worship and Outreach in Claremorris. Services here are held in the McWilliam Hotel on the first Sunday of every month at 12 noon.
