On Palm Sunday, the churchwardens announced that the Reverend Elizabeth Jane Nattrass MA is to be appointed, as "Priest-in-Charge", to the Benefice of St Lawrence with St Nicholas and New Fulford. The Reverend Nattrass is already well-known in York, having charge of our neighours in the parishes of St Denys and All Saints, Pavement, as well as of the churches of St Helen with St Martin, St Olave, and the Priory Church of the Holy Trinity, Micklegate. The Reverend Nattrass will be licensed by His Grace the Lord Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, and installed by the Archdeacon of York, the Venerable Sarah Bullock, being presented by our Patrons, the Dean and Chapter of York Minster. This will happen AT ST LAWRENCE at 7:30PM on THURSDAY 30TH APRIL. It will be followed by a buffet and other refreshments for all in the Church Community Hall. All are warmly invited to attend - we particularly hope that as many parishioners as possible are able to make it (you can see the Facebook event here - do click attending!) We are looking forward to a bright future together with our new priest and our new partners inside the city walls.
