Wendy Catchpole (1947 – 2015) Wendy was elected as Church Secretary in April 2010 having been involved at the Chaplaincy for over ten years. She stood down in 2014. As well as her secretarial duties, she took care of the church garden and the Priest Calendar and was quietly a very generous person. We will miss her.
READER AND HONORARY CHURCH WARDEN
Peter Jones (1947 – 2013) was the Reader at Holy Ghost from the 1970s onward as well as Churchwarden. Originally from the UK, his home became Genoa. As a former English teacher and trainer, many people in Genoa owe their knowledge and enjoyment of English to him. A tribute from friends can be read on the church’s Facebook page.
