A former vicar of Huddersfield returned to her roots yesterday as she led a service in the town.
Catherine Ogle left the town five years ago for pastures new as the dean of Birmingham Cathedral.
She marked her brief stay with a visit to Huddersfield Parish Church where she preached at the main Sunday service.
The service was open to anyone with a connection to Catherine, who was here for 10 years.
Catherine was the first ever female vicar of Huddersfield when she was appointed in 2001.
She went on to take a leading role in the life of the town, particularly working with other religions through the Interfaith Network.
When she took on her new role in Birmingham, Catherine became one of only three women to have risen to the position of dean within the Church of England.
The present vicar of Huddersfield, the Rev Canon Simon Moor, was neighbour to Catherine as they both served parishes in the Barnsley area before her move to Huddersfield.
