New Curate to come to St Peter’s

Our new future curate

St Peter’s is to have a new curate, starting at her ordination on Sunday 1st July.  Helena Whittaker will be ordained Deacon that day, and St Peter’s will close its morning service and go to Leicester Cathedral to support her.  She starts work that evening when we welcome her to St Peter’s at a service of Songs of Praise (6pm).

Helena is married (to another vicar! – John Whittaker, at St Mary’s Hinckley) and has two teenage children.  She is a full-time teacher at Leicester Grammar School, and so her time at St Peter’s will be limited in term-time to Sundays and the odd evening.  But she hopes to spend more time with us in the school holidays.

Helena said, “I’m really looking forward to learning about life in Braunstone, which is a very different community to those I’ve been used to.  And I’m looking forward to working with Chris and the other church members at St Peter’s too.”
