A Note from the Bishop – Who is doing what now?

Dear Friends:  
Over the next month I will be working on making an interim appointment of a priest to give leadership until the appointment of a Rector and Dean.  
In the meantime, Sandra Sugden and I will be overseeing the worship and pastoral needs of the Cathedral community.  

Any calls for pastoral needs should come to the Cathedral phone number – during the week Claire will be taking calls and on the week-end Sandra will be checking the office phone.  Should something arise that is of a urgent nature, please be in touch with us at our home numbers.  Bishop’s 250-374-5112 or Sandra 250-376-1288 or your Church Wardens who can also be in touch with us.  

Time of transition are always hard for us.  Please know that we are doing our best to ensure that the needs of folks of the Cathedral will be well cared for during this transition.
