On Friday February 12, at 11 am the Central Interior family is invited to gather at St Paul’s Cathedral for a memorial service to give thanks to God for the life and ministry of Bishop Jim Cruickshank.  Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Archbishop John Privett and others from outside of the Central Interior will be joining us.  This date was selected as it is the closest day to the anniversary date of his consecration as Bishop of Cariboo on February 9, 1992 and that seemed convenient for the community.  A reception will follow in the Cathedral Hall.
As we gather as the Cariboo family of Bishop Jim, I am inviting the clergy (colour white) and LMWS to robe.  Pastoral Elders and the Canons of Cariboo and the Central Interior are invited to join the procession.  Visiting clergy and ecumenical partners are also invited to robe.  Please confirm your attendance with the APCI office by February 5, 2016 -

In honour of Bishop Jim’s legacy as Bishop of Cariboo and his ministry throughout the church, a Legacy Fund in memory of Bishop Jim Cruickshank, has been set up in the APCI Investment Fund.  Donations can be made to the APCI office at 360 Nicola St, Kamloops, BC V2C  clearly marked in Memory of Bishop Jim.  

As families do at the time of the death of one of its beloved members, we will gather to story tell and to share those stories with one another.  We are inviting you to write your story of Bishop Jim.  These stories will be published in a booklet and shared with Bishop Jim’s family and the wider church family.  We would like to publish some of these stories in the next LINK (deadline January 28).  Please submit your stories to by January 28 for inclusion in the LINK and the booklet for the service on February 12.  We will continue to collect stories until the end of March for inclusion in a final booklet.  We welcome high resolution pictures along with your stories or just send us a picture.  

Some of the members of the Central Interior family will be traveling to attend the Memorial Service being held for Bishop Jim in Vancouver on January 16that 3 pm in Christ Church Cathedral.  Please let us know if you plan to attend (car-pooling may be

“You have kept the best wine until NOW!”

Canon David Sinclair has been part of the clergy team at St. Paul’s Cathedral since September 2015, coming from the Diocese of Montreal, which has a partnership agreement with APCI. A Canon of St. George’s Cathedral in Kingston, Ontario, David retired from the Diocese of Ontario in 2004, and has since then been engaged in Interim Ministries in the Diocese of Montreal. A passionate practitioner of life-long learning and opportunities for ministry in later years, David’s response to his mid-life crisis was to complete a Doctorate in Ministry at the Toronto School of Theology in 1991 with a focus on spiritual tasks in late life. He will celebrate his 80th birthday later this year.
