Liz McElhinney – a very sad loss to the ChurchTuesday 13 June 2017
The funeral service for the Revd Liz McElhinney will be held on Saturday, June 17 at 10.30am in Shankill Parish Church.
Paying tribute to her, Bishop Harold said: “It is so hard to believe that the vibrant and loving Liz McElhinney has gone.
“She died of Motor Neurone Disease, and gave a wonderful testimony of faith in the YouTube clip on this website (available to view on front page ‘banner’).
“I had the privilege of sharing in Holy Communion with her last week to give thanks for the 20th anniversary of her ordination. It was a holy moment.”
Liz was a curate in Magheralin from 1997 until 2001 before continuing her ministry in Calry in the diocese of Kilmore Elphin and Ardagh.
She returned to the diocese of Down & Dromore in retirement in 2007, taking on the role of pastoral support for the clergy of Down & Dromore and their spouses until 2012.
She then served in parochial ministry in Roscommon, diocese of Kilmore Elphin and Ardagh from 2013 to 2015.
