Congratulations go to Pat Phillipps, who on 8th March 2015 received the Cross of St Piran from Bishop Tim of the Diocese of Truro.
As reported on the website of the Diocese of Truro*, Pat was nominated for the award on the following basis:
“Pat has been one of the churchwardens at St Bartholomew’s Church, Warleggan for the last 15 years, is the Treasurer of Warleggan PCC and is also the Chairman of the local secular parish committee. She has overseen the re-roofing of St Bartholomew’s raising funds from charities and from her own continuous efforts trading in second hand books. Pat is a staunch member of the Bible Study groups including the local Greek group which looks at the readings for the following Sunday in the Greek New Testament. She has acted throughout as a friend of the local Methodist Church in Mount attending their special events and services.”
On the Friday following this award, Pat was greeted with applause as she came in to Village Greens at the hall; all those present heard how and why she had received the award and watched as Pat was handed a bouquet of flowers and cut a celebratory cake.
