December 2019 sees the 25th anniversary of the first ordinations of women to the priesthood in Scotland. Many members of St Mary’s congregation were involved in the discussions and campaigns around this issue both within the General Synod structures and the Movement for Whole Ministry.
A service will take place to mark this anniversary in Perth on 14 December 2019. On 15th December, the Provost has invited two of the women who were ordained in St Mary’s in Glasgow to lead the worship at the 10.30 am service. The Rev Canon Jeanette Jenkins will preside and the Rev Canon Shelley Marsh will preach. Both are honorary canons of the cathedral.
