Sunday, February 19 will mark Reverend Leslie Fotakis’ last service at the St John the Baptist Anglican Church.
While admittedly sad to be leaving Wellington, Reverend Fotakis said she is excited to start her new journey in Kyogle, in the states’ far north-east.
“Certain events and conversations led the bishop of Grafton inviting me to interview for the role – and I was hearing God’s call,” she said.
Reverend Fotakis said there is much she will miss about Wellington.
“The parish has been a joy to minister in.
“I’ve enjoyed being a part of the WINS [Wellington Information and Neighbourhood Services] board, playing football with Gungie Origin, and all of the countless community events.
“I’m going to miss the Wellington community enormously – but I feel like my time here has come to a close,” she said.
Reverend Fotakis said she hopes to have fulfilled God’s wishes.
“My prayer is that I was able to share God’s love in this wonderful community.”
