Emma Rothwell is Chaplain in Wilson’s Hospital as well as being our Diocesan Youth and. Children’s Officer. On the evening of Monday 6 February she was licensed as a diocesan lay-reader by Bishop Pat Storey.

The Service took place in the School chapel at Wilson’s Hospital. It was attended by members of Emma’s family, friends as well as colleagues from school and across the dioceses.

Being a licensed lay-reader will enable Emma to fulfil more of her ministry in the school chapel.

Bishop Pat Storey said, “Emma has brought much inspiration and encouragement to youth work in our diocese. She somehow manages to combine this with her busy role in Wilson’s Hospital and the diocese”.
