On Saturday morning, September 23, 2023, a few minutes before the scheduled Conversation with the Primate event for the clergy of the Diocese of New Westminster, the Primate, the Most Reverend Linda Nicholls took a few minutes to bless the diocesan PWRDF folks supporting the annual Wild Ride fundraiser.

Appearing in the photographs are: the Reverend Margaret Marquardt (Diocesan PWRDF Unit); Bishop John Stephens; Liz MacDonald, ODNW (Diocesan PWRDF Unit); Jane Dittrich, ODNW (Wild Ride cyclist and principal local Wild Ride fundraiser), Peter Goodwin (Diocesan PWRDF Unit); Mark Halyk (Christ Church Cathedral PWRDF representative).

After receiving the archbishop’s blessing, the group walked through Vancouver’s Shaughnessy district and down the Arbutus Corridor as part of PWRDF’s 2023 Wild Ride.

The graphic shows that as of September 23, Jane was right behind Her Grace with the second highest total of money raised.
