In the accompanying photo we see Bishop Michael Ingham and Diocese of New Westminster Archivist, Melanie Wallce. Both will be attending General Synod this year June 3rd-June 11th at St. Mary's University in Halifax.
This photo was taken May 2nd, 2010 the day that Melanie was confirmed.
Clergy representatives from the Diocese of New Westminster include: the Rev. Christine Rowe, the Very Reverend Peter Elliott and the Rev. Eileen Nurse. We will be represented by lay delegates: Rob Dickson, Glen Mitchell, Melanie Wallace, Jane Osler and Bonnie Fulton among others.
Here is a link to the Anglican Journal home page and to the current list of archived stories that deal with General Synod.
Former Communications Officer for the Diocese of New Westminster, Neale Adams has been contracted by
the Anglican Journal to assist in putting out a daily newspaper covering every aspect of General Synod.
Neale's great skills as a reporter will be a huge benefit to General Synod communications. Make plans to visit the National Church website and the Anglican Journal website often during those nine days in June.
