Our Parish Welcomes Bishop Barbara Andrews
on Sunday, July 15th
While our pastor/priest/minister, the Rev. Brian Krushel, is on sabbatical and vacation this summer, several people from all three of our denominations has led or will be leading worship. The Right Reverend Barbara Andrews, the Suffragan Bishop of the Territory of the People, is our Anglican Bishop. She will lead worship and preside at the Eucharist in both Trinity Shared Ministry (9 am) and the Church of Saint Paul (11 am) on Sunday, July 15th.
Although Bishop Barbara has a very formal role within the Anglican Church of Canada, she has a delightful sense of humour and a warm presence. To learn a bit more about her, a biography will be found on the Territory of the People website.
For those in the North Thompson with an Anglican background, this service would certainly be an opportunity for you to experience your Anglican roots since one of the Anglican orders of service will be used. Everyone is always welcome to attend our services.
During the rest of the summer, two people will be leading worship. The Rev. John Boyd, an ordained minister of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, visits us from Kamloops on July 29, August 5, and August 26. Linda Ervin, a commissioned diaconal minister in the United Church of Canada living in Penticton, will lead worship on July 22, August 12, and August 19. As is our practice, communion will be served each week in the Church of St Paul and on the first and third Sundays in Trinity Shared Ministry.
