We are very sad to be saying goodbye to the Revd Dr Rowena Pailing after Easter. Rowena joined the staff of the College in 2012 as Dean of Pastoral Studies. This is a complex task that requires some of the skills of a magician, fluent multi-tasking, thick skin, the patience of Job, and the grace of all the saints put together. Rowena has triumphed in every part of the role and leaves behind a web of friends and supporters. There is seemingly no limit to her skills: early in her College career she heralded the arrival of the mighty haggis at our Burns night celebration with some powerful  (and tuneful) squeezing of the bagpipes… We shall greatly miss Rowena, her husband Crispin, and Ambrose and Jerome and very much hope that they will all keep in touch with us.
