New vicar for Bro Deiniol
The Bishop of Bangor – the Right Reverend Andy John – is pleased to announce the appointment of the Reverend Canon Tracy Jones as the new Associate Vicar in the Bro Deiniol Ministry Area.
Canon Tracy will be leaving her present role in the Bro Padrig Ministry Area in the north-west corner of Anglesey and coming to minister as part of the team in the Bro Deiniol Ministry Area, which serves Penrhosgarnedd, Maesgeirchen and the city of Bangor.
Originally from Leamington Spa, Canon Tracy trained as a nurse. In 1992 she married Martin and they moved back to his family home near Amlwch.
Tracy worked as a neo-natal nurse in St. David’s Hospital (Bangor) and Ysbyty Gwynedd, before having their two children, Ffion and Aaron. Whilst at home caring for her children, Tracy volunteered for Home Start and Gwynedd Hospice at Home and became more involved in church life in Amlwch. It was during this time that Tracy began to explore God’s call to ordained ministry.
She was ordained deacon in 2012 and a priest in 2013. She served as a curate in Seintiau Braint a Chefni, the Ministry Area that formerly went from Llanfairpwll to Aberffraw, before becoming the Ministry Area Leader of Bro Padrig in 2014.
In rare moments of spare time, Tracy enjoys crafting of all types, as a way to relax and be creative.
Looking forward to her new role in Bro Deiniol, Canon Tracy said,
‘When I was training for ministry I did a placement in Bangor, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I was thrilled when this opportunity arose for me to come and minister alongside Dean Kathy and the rest of the ministry team. I’m looking forward to reaching out to people and showing that Jesus’ Gospel message of love and care for all is as relevant today as it was over 2000 years ago. I want to play my small part in enabling people in Bro Deiniol to combine their talents, and become a community that can effectively live out that Gospel message.’
The Very Reverend Kathy Jones – Dean of Bangor and Ministry Area Leader in Bro Deiniol – said,
‘I am really looking forward to welcoming Canon Tracy to the Bro Deiniol Ministry Area. Her many gifts will be invaluable as we seek to grow church communities in Bro Deiniol. I am looking forward to ministering alongside her to her.’
The Bishop of Bangor – the Right Reverend Andy John – said,
‘Tracy is a dedicated priest who worked tirelessly in her ministry in Bro Padrig, for which I am most grateful. I am delighted that she will now be bringing her ministry to Bro Deiniol. She will bring strong pastoral gifts to the team in Bro Deiniol and will be a valuable support to Dean Kathy and the rest of the team there.
Please do pray for Canon Tracy, her family and the people Bro Deiniol and Bro Padrig’
A special service to celebrate Canon Tracy’s new ministry in Bro Deiniol will be held at 7pm on Monday 8 October at St. Peter’s Church, Penrhosgarnedd. All are welcome to attend.
