First Event: Sunday, January 26th, 2014, at St. Helen's Parish, North Burnaby, 3860 Triumph Street, Burnaby, 2-4pm. Registration at 1:30pm.
The principal participants for the first event will be the Reverend Dr. Richard Leggett, Incumbent Priest at St. Faith's Anglican Church, Vancouver and Dr. Christophe Potoworowski, Professor at Redeemer Pacific College in Langley.

Presented by, the Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations Office of the Archdiocese of Vancouver (Coordinator, Marjeta Bobnar) and the Ecumenical Multi-Faith Unit (EMU) of the Diocese of New Westminster (the Venerable Grant Rodgers) in order to facilitate understanding and a shared vision of mission between the two denominations.
