The Annual Investiture of New Members to the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster (ODNW) will have a different look in this its seventh year. It is unlikely that the renovations currently taking place at Christ Church Cathedral will be completed by Sunday, November 1 so Bill Siksay the Executive Assistant to the Bishop Executive Archdeacon got busy and found a new venue for the 2015 Eucharist, and that venue is the Massey Theatre located at 735 8th Avenue at the corners of 8th Street and 8th Avenue in New Westminster. The Massey Theatre is a community theatre and shares its location with New Westminster High and other School District 40 buildings and offices. The 1200+ seat theatre will require some “outside the box” thinking by the worship planning team but everyone involved is enthusiastic and up for the challenge.
It is a great location with ample parking in the area and lots of transit nearby.
Start time as of this writing remains 4pm. Diocesan communications will continue posting updates about the event over the next 8 weeks. The October issue of Topic will contain the list of nominees and more information about the event. The list of nominees will also be available on the ODNW page of this website by August, 2015.
