A service of Ordination will take place on Friday 14th September 2012 at 7.30pm in Magheraculmoney Parish Church, Ardess in County Fermanagh, when the Bishop of Clogher, the Rt Revd John McDowell will ordain the Revd Caroline Mansley to the priesthood.
Caroline was born in Northern Ireland but has spent most of her life in England. She studied History at the University of Bristol and re-affirmed her faith at Christ Church, Clifton. She also met her husband Nigel there. They lived in Bristol, Devon and Hampshire before responding to God's call to return to Nigel's home town of Bangor, Co. Down in 1997. They have two children: Jessica, 26 years, married to Ross, and Chris, 23 years. Jessica and Ross live in Enfield, North London and Jessica gave birth to Joel in July, which makes Caroline and Nigel a proud Nanna and Papa.
Caroline's home Parish is St Columbanus, Ballyholme, where she was involved in many church activities, including house groups and Alpha courses. She recently served as Intern Deacon at Willowfield Parish in East Belfast as part of her Masters in Theology degree from Trinity College Dublin. She has a passion to see God's people grow and be fruitful in serving Him. She is currently serving as curate assistant in Magheraculmoney Parish in the Diocese of Clogher.
