From Mr Glyn Morgan

Sir, — So the Revd Naomi Starkey impressed with her reading in Welsh at her priesting in Bangor (Diary, 24 July). Having taught her briefly, I am not surprised. She impressed me early on when she enrolled on a Welsh course.

I, too, was present at a Petertide ordination, in Lichfield, to witness the ordination to the diaconate of another lady I have taught Welsh to. Ursula will serve in Shrewsbury.

Excellent Welsh courses are now widely available for anyone aspiring to work in a bilingual setting — any cleric fancying a move to the Church in Wales, as it looks forward to the centenary of disestablishment.
