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 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.
