More About Mary's Installation
Michael Keck writes:
"The Installation of Revd Mary Jepp as Rector of Holy Trinity Church, Kilmarnock, took place at Holy Trinity on Thursday 15th June.
A number of people from the Benefice travelled north to attend.
The church was packed for the service taken by the Right Reverend Gregor Duncan, Bishop of Glasgow & Galloway. Besides Mary’s parishioners and members of other churches, Jim Todd, the Provost (Mayor to you and me) of East Ayrshire and the local MP attended.
After the service, there was an amazing spread in the church hall attached to the church, and we ‘Sassenachs’ were made to feel very welcome. We were left in no doubt as to the warmth of a community in very different surroundings from ours, and feel Mary & Mike will be very happy in this new chapter of their lives.
The last two pictures reflect two aspects of the evening. The first might be said to show the formal Mary, with the Bishop. The second shows the real Mary with two of her new parishioners".
