Church lead­ers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Ms Woods was un­sure if she would take the next step and be­come a priest, promis­ing to go “wher­ever God leads me”.

“If he wants me to move for­ward, I’m sure there will be many signs to point me in that di­rec­tion,” she said.

Ms Kachel has been in­volved in the church vir­tu­ally all her life af­ter grow­ing up in the area and said she looks for­ward to the ex­cit­ing work she will be do­ing in the church and the com­mu­nity.

“The cel­e­bra­tion was a very spe­cial oc­ca­sion, the amount of love and sup­port we re­ceived from friends, fam­ily and our church com­mu­nity was a lit­tle over­whelm­ing,” she said.
