119th Synod of the Diocese of New Westminster
May 24 and 25, 2019 at the Italian Cultural Centre
The theme for Diocesan Synod 2019 (May 24 & 25) was Love One Another: Christ’s Body, the Church. Love one and other comes from John 15:12. It was the reading for the day and the beginning of the verses our Primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, uses as foundational scripture.
We were fortunate that our Primate was with us at our 119th Synod, preaching at Morning Prayer and speaking to us about our church’s ministry and witness nationally and globally.
As one faithful body we embraced the opportunity to learn about the remarkable work taking places in ministries around our diocese including the revision and updating of our Constitution and Canons. Interactive presentations, table discussions and feed-back were used to encourage an atmosphere or learning, discovery and discussion.
