Congratulations to the Rev. Patrick Blaney, and the parish of St. John’s, North Vancouver for the great compassionate service ministry they are pursuing and for sending in this photo from Palm Sunday, 2017.
In a February event posting on this website we published Donna Lawrence’s report on the parish’s winter fundraising initiative. As Donna reported they’d raised $10,000 ($10,635) for The Lookout Society and here is the photo of Donna and Rev. Blaney presenting a cheque to Bailey, a Lookout Society representative.
The parish of St. John's is already looking towards next year and The Long, Long Night of Hope 2018, with dreams of growing the fundraiser beyond the North Shore and involving other Anglican churches in the Lower Mainland.
Thanks to Margaret Ellis for this photo
