CPAS has been impacting the ministry of Ray Smith for an amazing 60 years. Ray reflects on 60 years of ministry:
'On St Matthew's Day 1953, I turned my collar around having been ordained at Liverpool Cathedral.
'I have now celebrated just over 60 years in the ministry, and I wanted to mark this by a donation because whilst in training, as a curate, and when I became an incumbent, there was always the generosity of the Church Pastoral Aid Society providing support.
'Thank you so much for your help over the years. May I also say I am delighted to read of the courses etc. from CPAS which engage in training in the parishes. They are greatly needed.'
