7th Annual Investiture of New Members to the ODNW

The 7th Annual Investiture of New Members to the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster (ODNW) Eucharist will take place at the Massey Theatre in New Westminster, 735 8th Avenue, Sunday, November 1st at 7pm (NOTE THE TIME CHANGE due to the Massey Theatre's double booking).

Doors will open at 5:30pm and all are invited to arrive at that time to enjoy a reception in the theatre lobby. Refreshments will be provided and will include a tempting assortment of finger foods both sweet and savoury. This will be a great opportunity to spend some social time together as a diocesan family as we prepare to honour the “modern day Saints” among us.

There will be a special Registration desk in the theatre lobby area where recipients will need to check-in, no later than 6:15 pm. Clergy are also requested to vest and process and the call time is also 6:15pm. Liturgical colour is white.

With the increased seating capacity in the theatre (approximately 1200) compared to that of Christ Church Cathedral (600), Bishop Skelton has informed diocesan communications each person being invested can now invite up to a total of 15 family members, friends, and fellow parishioners to the Investiture Service. 

The Main entrance is located just east of the 8th Avenue & 8th Street intersection. Watch for large reader board at street side & Massey Theatre awning above main entrance doors.
