2018 Mary Potter Celebrations

    During the month of November we celebrate the birthday of our founder, the Venerable Mary Potter. The celebrations include events throughout our services acknowledging Venerable Mary Potter’s legacy.

    As a member of the Calvary family, you matter and I want to know what matters to you, about Calvary?

    To that end I invite you to share your story at the link below, of your experience of the legacy of the Venerable Mary Potter and the Spirit of Calvary.

    You may find  example stories further below, along with Mary Potter Celebration resources including a poster for display in staff areas.

    With your permission, we will share your story at the celebrations. Stories are due by Friday 26 October.
