The Venerable John Stephens, Archdeacon of Vancouver and Rector of St. Philip, Dunbar is currently on sabbatical and travelling in South Africa. Many thanks to John for sending us this photo taken June 29th at the World Cup match between Japan and Paraguay.
In the photo we see John and Ruth with children, Sarah and Matthew. The other two folks in the picture are Synod Office Receptionist Wilna Parry’s niece Mariette and her husband Rickardt. Their subtle costumes suggest that they were probably cheering for Japan.
Hopefully John will bring his green vuvuzela home to St. Philip's to rally the members for Parish Council meetings
