George Proud's ordination as Priest in Riding Mill
On the 2nd July the Revd George Proud was ordained Priest at St James' Church, Riding Mill (near Corbridge) where he had served as curate for a year since his ordination as Deacon.
George came to ordination after a long career as a surgeon, and comments, “Anyone who undertakes a medical career of any kind will tell just how much one learns about people and their responses and fears to all kinds of situations.”
Married to Janet, George served the church as a Reader (a licenced lay minister) for some years, which gradually reinforced his calling to ordained ministry in his home parish.
