After a few weeks of unsettled weather, the sun came out on Sunday (June 26th) for the Tri-Cities and North Burnaby Deanery Picnic. Members of all ages from the five parishes in the Deanery met at Blue Mountain Park in Coquitlam for an afternoon of food and socializing. From all accounts, this is the first time the Deanery has gathered for a social event.
The parishes of St. Catherine’s, St. John’s, St. Laurence, St. Stephen’s and St. Timothy met at the park after their respective Sunday services to share an informal picnic where members were asked to bring their own lunch plus food to share. The ice cream was well received!
It was a beautiful, warm sunny day for the 90 people who attended; perfect for relaxing in lawn chairs and enjoying each other's company. Many thanks to the Parish of St. Timothy for coordinating the event.
