On October 21st, 2010 Diocesan Business Administrator, Rob Dickson and Executive Archdeacon for the Diocese, the Venerable Ronald Harrison presented a cheque on behalf of the Anglican entities; the Diocese of New Westminster and the Ecclesiastical Province of British Columbia and the Yukon in the amount of $300,000 to the Vancouver School of Theology.
This cheque is the payment of a grant pledged a number of years ago to VST for the building of the Archives now completed and located in the basement of the VST library. This facility houses the diocesan archives, provincial synod archives, the United Church archives (the United Church of Canada had previously paid their $300,000 grant) and the VST archives.
