Mary Slessor Commemoration

Earlier today, I took part in the Mary Slessor Commemoration at the Steeple Church at which, on the centenary of the death of Mary Slessor, a commemorative plaque and standing stone was unveiled to celebrate the huge achievements of Mary Slessor during her extraordinary life.

The event outside the City Churches started during a significant snow storm, but, appropriately, as the stone and plaque were unveiled, the sun broke through.

The Mary Slessor Foundation has organised events throughout 2015 and you can read more about these here.

Here are two photographs from today's commemoration :
