Many congratulations go to Jill Rawcliffe who has just been licensed as a Pastoral Worker for the Parish of Hoylake.
Jill has been worshiping at St Hildeburgh's Parish Church in Hoylake for a number of years. For the past couple of years, Jill has been training with the Diocese of Chester to become a Pastoral Worker.
Jill has already made her pastoral mark in Hoylake through working closely with local residential and care homes. She has taken a lead in organizing St. Hildeburgh's monthly 'Soup & Sandwich Lunches' for senior citizens and our regular special services in church for care home residents, their families and friends.
Jill has another important role at St. Hildeburgh's through managing and staffing our Church Office several days each week and carrying out many important administrative tasks.
