In the photo Kevin is wearing the new red cashmere stole given him by the Chancel Guild of St. Mary’s featuring the aboriginal motif of the salmon and eggs (buttons) which represent the cycle of life in west coast aboriginal culture. The stole was designed with the assistance of well-known aboriginal artist, Dorothy Grant.
