The Reverend Sutherland contributed these words:
"I am happy and honoured to be the new Chaplain of the Anglican Church Women (ACW) of the diocese and I look forward to providing spiritual guidance and presence at this time. I also look forward to assisting President Kelly Bowman and the board, in sharing about goals and objectives of this great ministry, with the hope that more parishes will be encouraged to establish ACW groups as one of their ministries to the service of God"
