Following his last service in Arbroath on Sunday (November 23) Rev. Canon Dr John Cuthbert and Mrs Mairi Cuthbert were presented with a cheque and other farewell gifts by Mrs Margaret Christison and Mr Dave McIntosh on behalf of the congregation of St Mary’s Episcopal Church. A farewell lunch followed in the church hall.
A large congregation expressed gratitude to John and Mairi for their service to St Mary’s for almost 11 years.
They are moving to Inverness, where Canon Cuthbert is to be licensed as City Priest, and in charge of two churches.
During the interregnum period at St Mary’s, Arbroath, and St Peter’s, Auchmithie, church services will be conducted by the Bishop of Brechin, The Rt. Rev. Dr Nigel Peyton. Pictured from left - Rev. Canon Dr John Cuthbert, Dave McIntosh, Margaret Christison and Mairi Cuthbert.
