Ordination of Margaret Holt

The large contingent of parishioners from the Parish of Strathalbyn who were able to be present at Margaret Holt’s ordination to the Diaconate on Saturday 22 April were delighted to have been the witnesses of such an historic event in the life of the Diocese of The Murray. This is the first time that a woman has been made a Deacon in this Diocese. Margaret is a much loved and valuable member of our parish family.

    Wonderful to see that the last bastion has fallen and now every one of the 23 dioceses of the Anglican Church of Australia has women deacons.
    Only the dioceses of North West Australia, Sydney and The Murray do not ordain women as priests.
    Five of the dioceses have women bishops.
    Margaret Holt’s gifts of leading by serving have been enriching the church for a long time. It is inspiring to see those gifts recognised.

    As someone who was unable to be present on the day, how wonderful to have these beautiful photographs. Every blessing upon you and your ministry Margaret. It is so good to know of your ordination. Dianne
