On October 28, 2012, the Parish of St. Matthew, Abbotsford was pleased to welcome Bishop Michael Ingham to the Sunday service. Bishop Michael led the service, which celebrated a Feast of Dedication and was followed by a feast, of sorts, in the church hall thereafter. Abbotsford Mayor, Dr. Bruce Banman, who had been kind enough to speak at the opening of the St. Francis Animal Blessing event three weeks earlier, was in attendance as was Dr. Elizabeth Borgmann who had contributed immeasurably to the success of that event.
