The most noteworthy and exciting event of the past month, at St. Matthew’s, has got to be Sunday’s installation of the Reverend Canon Alex Parsons as our half-time priest. It was a beautiful service, made even more beautiful by the feeling of family that pervaded the entire building. Bishop Chris Harper’s homily was enlightening, spiritual and entertaining. The participation of many of our parishioners made it a special time for those honoured to assist. The reception afterwards gave everyone a chance to chat and reconnect with those friends not seen regularly. Thanks to everyone who made the afternoon so delightful. The event will be remembered as a highlight of our church year.
