Sermon preached by Bishop John Stephens during an Easter VI episcopal visit to the parish where he was incumbent prior to his October 3, 2021 election as the 10th Bishop of the Diocese of New Westminster. In the western secular world, May 14, 2023 was Mother's Day.
This visit followed the 122nd Synod of the Diocese of New Westminster which ran May 12 and 13 and concluded 16 hours or so before this Sunday visit. It was a busy weekend for the bishop.
This liturgy also included Episcopal Offices, as there was one confirmation and two reaffirmations.
This video was processed from the parish's livestream of the main celebration of the Eucharist, created and prepared by Bruce Gregg.
