On Easter Sunday, we said goodbye to Rev. Dr. Margaret Dineley as she prepared to move onto her next stage in ministry and life. It was highly appropriate to celebrate with Margaret on Sunday 21 April, seeing that Easter Sunday marks new beginnings!
Margaret spent many years offering ministry to the congregation of St. Finnian’s and in our local community of Lochgelly. Progressing from Lay Reader, ordination to the diaconate and then the priesthood in 2015, Margaret worked closely with nursing homes in the area ensuring ministry to those who were unable to attend church.
Since selling her home and moving to live with her partner Ian in Edinburgh, her next stage in ministry has already begun taking up the role of non-stipendiary Assistant Priest at St. Cuthbert’s in Colinton.
Although we were sad to see Margaret leave us at St. Finnian’s, we are of course delighted for her future life in Edinburgh.
