Bishop Jill invited to give presentation address at her old school in Bolton

Rt Rev. Dr Jill Duff, Bishop of Lancaster, was invited back to Bolton School recently to speak to the girls of the school at their presentation evening. 

Bishop Jill is Bolton-born and was a pupil herself at the school. She is pictured right with the Head Girl and Deputy Head Girls before the presentation. 

Quoting Catherine of Siena, she encouraged girls to be who God called them to be and set the world on fire; that they were at a mountain top moment where they could take stock and pride in how far they have come and look forward to the future – a future where they should stretch their wings and take up that big vision!
