The June 15 Eucharist with Ordinations at Christ Church Cathedral was blessed with the presence of a cohort from the Diocese of New Westminster's Companion Diocese; Episcopal Diocese of Northern Philippines (EDNP).
The group with their hosts, Fr. Arvin Amayag, Vicar of St. Mary the Virgin, Sapperton and gathering priest for the local chapter of The Brotherhood of St. Andrew and Felly Ferinas, spouse of the Reverend Expedito Farinas, Rector of St. Mary the Virgin, South Hill posed for photos with Archbishop Skelton and her husband the Reverend Eric Stroo, Deacon at St. Michael's, Vancouver.
One photo was at the reredos in order to include the Trinity icon and another one was taken at the chancel entrance to include the chancel arch stained glass windows.
There is a lot of activity taking place in the Diocese of New Westminster in mid and late June so the visitors will have a lot to do. The Diocesan School for Parish Development is up and running daily at Vancouver School of Theology and the Indigenous People's Day Celebration Feast will take place at the Synod Office on Wednesday, June 19, to name two events.
