University recognises Ruth

RSS

After three years of study and having been licensed as a Reader for a year, Ruth Calcott, from St Hildeburgh’s church in Hoylake, was presented with a very special degree certificate. Due to ill health Ruth was unable to complete the required study, but the University of Chester awarded her an aegrotat Foundation degree in Mission and Ministry in recognition of her work. 

Bishop Keith presented the degree to Ruth at a special service organized by Revd Paul Rossiter, vicar of the parish, and Revd Liz Shercliff, Director of Studies for Readers. The service was attended by members of the parish and some of Ruth’s fellow students. Pictured are (left to right) John Grainger, Bishop Keith, Liz Shercliff, Sarah Dutton, and Rob Croft.
