Local Kathleen Hartwell (Kay) received the prestigious Order of the Diocese of Quebec in a Dec. 3 ceremony at St. George’s in Lennoxville, recognizing her lifetime of service and commitment to the Anglican Church. Her laudable accomplishments are detailed in a nomination letter authored by Archdeacon of Quebec Edward Simonton. The significance of the Order is outlined in the letter of confirmation Bishop Bruce Myers sent to Kay in response.

Raised in Lennoxville and a lifelong attendee of St. George’s, Kay’s journey in faith and service began in her youth, states Simonton’s letter of nomination. She was actively involved in various church groups, including the Little Helpers, Junior Auxiliary, and Girls’ Auxiliary. Her dedication continued into adulthood, earning her the status of a lifetime member of the Anglican Church Women (ACW).

Kay’s contributions extended beyond her home parish. In the Greater Parish of Coaticook, she took on roles as a lay reader, pastoral visitor, and parish treasurer. Her administrative skills were invaluable in her role as secretary, where she prepared weekly bulletins and other essential parish documents.
