We are delighted to be welcoming Jenny to the Cathedral's team as our SSM (Self-Supporting Minister) for Social Justice.

Many members of the congregation will know Jenny because she worshipped at the Cathedral prior her ordination ten years ago. As a member of the congregation in those days Jenny worked with Canon Alan Hargrave and others (including Alan Williams who now worships with us) in setting up the Ely Social Responsibility Forum, an ecumenical group that did important work with Christian Aid, Fairtrade, Amnesty International and debt relief. Jenny then left for parish ministry, but is retiring from that and returning to her Social Justice roots and assisting in co-ordinating this work here again. There is a particular aim to set up and chair a Social Justice Advisory Group, work with our Environment Group and consolidate our links with the Foodbank (of which she is a trustee) and Ely CAP (Christians Against Poverty).

Jenny will be licensed at Evensong on Saturday 6 July and we look forward to her ministry with us.
