Message from Revd Carey Saleh

‘Thank you so much for all the thoughts and prayers and love that you have expressed over the last few weeks; for all the messages and cards that you have sent. I have felt very much held by prayer and by all of you during my time in hospital and through surgery and continue to be so during this time of convalescence.

It’s good to be home.

Thank you everyone. Love from Carey.
