Annual Vestry Meeting – February 14 after church – come on out and discuss all things St. Paul’s related.

Please bring a finger food dish for sharing (potluck)

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 - apci@shaw.ca.

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 toapcibishop@shaw.ca 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.

Sorrento Centre Corner
What can you learn this year at Sorrento Centre?
FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 2016 - SUNDAY, MARCH 6, 2016
Courage to Teach ®
A Courage & Renewal ® Program for Educators
with Dan Hines
We teach who we are.
The best teaching arises from the identity and integrity of the one who teaches.
Teaching can never be reduced to techniques and methods.
During this program, educators are invited to reflect on questions of selfhood and teaching: “Who is the self that teaches?
How does the quality of my selfhood form-or deform-the way I relate
to my students, my subject, my colleagues, my world?”

Course Fee: $580, includes instruction, meals (Friday dinner through Sunday lunch), accommodation based on double occupancy.
