Unit Chaplain praised by her colleagues

Talisker MacLeod is the Unit Chaplain at the Hove and Adur Sea Cadets as well as a woman priest at All Saints Church in Hove.

Reverend MacLeod was ordained Deacon by the Bishop of Chichester on 26th June 2011 at Chichester Cathedral, after spending three years training at Ripon College, Cuddesdon, near Oxford. Originally she hails from Oxfordshire, though she has moved around quite a bit – her university days were spent at St. Andrews, where she studied Classics; shortly afterwards she began teaching at Christ’s Hospital near Horsham. Her interests include walking her dog, reading, excellent wines, good coffee, ballet, and theatre.

Recently, on Sunday 1st July 2012, Reverend MacLeod was ordained Priest by Bishop Christopher Herbert in Chichester Cathedral, witnessed by the Adult Volunteers and Sea Cadets from her Unit. The Adult Volunteers and Cadets felt very privileged to attend, they wanted to support and show their thanks to their Unit Chaplain on this very special day who has always given them 100% of her efforts.

Reverend Talisker MacLeod and colleagues

Reverend MacLeod regularly attends the parade nights, teaching New Entries as well as getting involved in whatever has to be done. Recently she ran an enrolment ceremony for the whole ship’s company presenting them with Bibles as they received their enrolment certificates. She has also joined them afloat after which she cooked on a BBQ for all who were present.

All Staff and Cadets wish her every success for her first mass on Sunday 8th July at 10.00am.
