Yes it happened in June…and is only now being posted – our apologies, but we are going with the “better late than never” theory on these next few posts while we get caught up!
It was a lovely Sunday for visiting Christ Church in lovely downtown Vancouver. The Cathedral was filled with excited and proud friends and family of the confirmands from all around the diocese. This was Bishop Melissa’s first confirmation, and she made it very special.
Our St. Stephen’s family presented two candidates that afternoon: Theresa Mae Lum and Hypax Ndayizeye. Hypax now calls Christ Church Cathedral his home parish, and Theresa continues to be an active member of our family here at St, Stephen the Martyr. Several members of our congregation were present that day; pictured above right are Theresa and Hypax with Bishop Melissa and Father Gary, and to the right: Theresa with her “Godsisters” Sarah and Colleen!
Please excuse the blurred images….we were missing our professional photographer that Sunday!
