Reverend Lorraine Colam - Permission to Officiate (PtO)
I am Lorraine. I was born in Reading and lived most of my life there. I currently live in Compton and work at Q Gardens Farm Shop. I was a registered nurse for 33 years and ended my NHS career in 2018 as Chaplain for Networked Care at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. I trained as an OLM serving in the Parish of St Catherine of Siena in Tilehurst and was ordained in 2007, priested a year later at St Mary Minster in Reading.
I was licensed to St Mary's Burghfield in Burghfield until January this year serving under Rev Glynn Lautenbach and am now happy to be serving under Reverend Wayne Lautenbach. I will be a part-time self supporting minister in the Hermitage team and look forward to serving you in each of the parishes.
