“I am delighted at the warm reception all over the diocese to the news of Ruth Elmes’ appointment as one of our archdeacons along with the Venerable Bob Gray. It is generally recognized that Ruth brings to this very responsible rold in the diocese huge skills both human and administrative. She reads people and situations very well and combines deep compassion with being a real ‘doer’.
