On Sunday, May 29, 2022, members of the Parish of Christ Church Cathedral gathered after worship to celebrate the 100th birthday of long time parishioner and lay leader, Margery Kellett, ODNW.
Among many accomplishments, Margery was a Warden of the parish, 1981, 1982 and 1984.
She was the first Cathedral parishioner to be nominated and invested into the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster in its inaugural year of 2009.
Her Citation reads:
Margery is a member of Christ Church Cathedral and is being honoured today as an elder of the Anglican Church. Her years of faithful prayer, wise counsel, and solid guidance have inspired a succession of Deans and Bishops in this Diocese. As well as serving as Warden and Trustee of the Cathedral, Margery has given great support to the Sorrento Centre – the Conference Centre of the Anglican Church on Shuswap Lake.
The party was organized by Margery's daughter, Ros Kellett and it was attended by Margery's many friends and admirers. Folks in attendance included retired dean and rector of Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver, the Reverend Canon Herbert O'Driscoll and his wife Paula O'Driscoll who made the trip over from Victoria. Canon O'Driscoll was the incumbent when the Kelletts began attending the church in the 1970s.
