We were blessed with fine weather for the Pastoral Charge’s Annual Worship Service and Picnic on June 23rd. About forty folk from Vavenby to Kamloops gathered on the lawn next to the Church of St Paul. A small chamber group of two violins and a drum led the music. However, there was the added surprise of us being serenaded at different points in the service by music coming over the speakers from an event happening at the bandstand across the road. As Pastor Brian was giving the sermon, a crow decided to join in with his or her own comments. After our souls were fed during communion, our bodies feasted on hotdogs, salads, and a fine selection of desserts. Many continued visiting well into the afternoon.
