Chaplain to the Queen is a personal appointment made by Her Majesty, making Sue a member of the Queen’s Ecclesiastical Household, one of 34 priests in the College of Royal Chaplains in England.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.
