Archbishop Skelton has appointed the Reverend Vivian Lam as Regional Dean of Granville effective July 1st. Vivian is Rector of St Matthias/St Luke, Oakridge and will succeed the Revd Richard Leggett.
The Reverend Grant Rodgers time as Director of Anglican Formation at the Vancouver School of Theology will increase to three-quarter capacity, beginning July 1, 2018. It will further increase to full-time beginning January 1, 2019.
As a result, Grant shifts to 25% at Christ the Redeemer, Cloverdale on July 1, and concludes at Christ the Redeemer on December 31, 2018.
At VST, Grant will take on increased teaching responsibilities, while continuing to serve as a mentor and guide for students, coordinating Anglican worship, carrying out various responsibilities as a member of faculty, and acting as a liaison with the wider Anglican community. We are grateful that to Principal Topping and to Grant for this increased focus for Anglican formation at VST.
Grant remains a priest of the Diocese of New Westminster, and will have more freedom to visit parishes interested in the work and direction of theological education and Anglican formation.
