A few years ago she began her studies to become a deacon in parallel to working at the church. In a family where the church always meant a lot but caring about fellow human beings means even more, the fact that their mother and wife maybe one day would be ordained was very significant. And in June this year it happened. Camilla’s studies were finished and she had passed her exams and we got an invitation to her ordination. It was to take place in Visby, a most beautiful medieval town on an island – Gotland – in the middle of the Baltic. The Bishop of the diocese of Visby is responsible among other things for all the Swedish churches abroad, so it was the natural place for Camilla’s ordination.
Mikee and I went there to celebrate with Camilla and her family and friends. But we also got an opportunity to visit this attractive island in the middle of the sea. In a separate portfolio I am showing a few images of Visby and Gotland and in this slide show I show a set of pictures of the ordination at the Sta Maria Cathedral of Visby and the reception afterwards.
