The 103rd version of the service of Remembrance at the cenotaph was a little different this year. We were restricted to a maximum of 25 people all properly distanced. We wound up with precisely 25. To start the ceremony we were treated by a flyby by a C130 Hercules (the aircraft Ron flew in the RCAF). Rev. Teresa read In Flanders Fields. Ron did the Act of Remembrance. Dan lowered the flag during the Last Post. Altogether the service lasted about 15 minutes. Here are some pictures of the event.
Our newly elected Bishop Todd Townshend visited Epiphany Sunday March 1st. The Bishop praised our congregation for the fine outreach we do for our local community. He also congratulated Rev Teresa for her 15 years of outstanding service at the Church of the Epiphany.
One of Bishop Townshend’s official duties was to bless and officially dedicate our new lectern given by Bob, Linda and Christine Aldington in memory of daughter/sister Lisa.
The congregation was blessed today with a surprise Birthday party celebrating one of our longest serving members, Jim Whittington. The surprise was orchestrated by Jim’s wife Dianne who contracted Jeremy Smith to play a surprise concert. Privacy and ethical concerns prevent me from disclosing the age of our Birthday Boy. Suffice to say, he is a younger man than I.
