Julia sadly died on the 26th September peacefully at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice.Canon Julia Wilkinson

She was a faithful and strong priest who had cared for her parishes of St Merryn, Sty Issey and Little Petherick for the past 14 years. She came to the diocese to work as a Diocesan Director of Ordinands alongside Bishop Roy as well as working in her parishes.

She was a very well-known person in the wider community actively involved in all manner of events. She was for example, a Chaplain at the Royal Cornwall Show.

Julia was a single lady who gave her life to her faith. She was a very prayerful person involved with the Community at Mucknell Abbey (Benedictine).

She served on the Diocesan Executive and the Diocesan Synod and did many other pieces of work for the diocese. She was made an Honorary Canon of Truro Cathedral and was committed to ecumenical working especially locally. She always spoke her mind and was vigorous in her championing of vulnerable people and she was passionate about many causes.

Please pray for her brother and her wider family and for the parishes she served so devotedly and for all her friends and those who will miss her so much.

May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
