On Wednesday of Holy Week, April 11, 2017, the Reverend Randolph Bruce was feted by the staff and board of St. Michael’s Centre (SMC), Burnaby (Hospice and Care Facility) in celebration of his commitment to SMC and his retirement as Spiritual Care Manager. As this photo shows there was great fun amongst the tears. Rev. Bruce is always a good sport.
A potluck luncheon was followed by an Easter liturgy which was the last service officiated by Reverend Bruce in his role as Spiritual Care Manager. SMC Chaplain, the Reverend Deacon Lilian Elliott reprorted, “there were more residents, family, staff than I have ever seen at SMC. We will miss his guidance.”
The Reverend Randolph Bruce began his commitment to SMC during his time as priest at All Saints’, Burnaby, he was a member of the board representing the diocese of New Westminster and was also board chair. When he retired from parish ministry he was hired as Spiritual Care Manager. The board presented Reverend Bruce with a piece of sacred art and also included a financial gift.
