The day had started at Hartlepool at 9:30 am with a celebratory service at St Hilda’s Church, led by The Rt Revd Sarah Clark, Bishop of Jarrow. She said: “I’m delighted to be taking part in the launch of The Way of St Hild which is a really exciting route celebrating the importance of Hild to both Hartlepool and Whitby and recognising the huge contribution she made to our Christian heritage.”

A short service of reflection was held at Whitby Abbey at 2:30 pm and The Rt Revd Paul Ferguson, Bishop of Whitby, lead a service at Whitby’s St Hilda’s Church at 4 pm. Most of the Sisters attended instead of holding Evensong at the Priory.

Bishop Paul said: “Hild’s remarkable life came to a climax in Whitby and it will be very special to be part of the launch of The Way of St Hild on International Women’s Day. I hope many people will join in the celebration services at Hartlepool and in Whitby, where I look forward to welcoming Bishop Sarah to preach.”
