God is doing many wonderful things in our midst!

We give thanks to God that as we begin the Lenten Fast our number continues to grow in attendance with 26 coming out to our last Vespers (thank you to all who brought the amazing "bliny" and cheesecakes). And our number continues to grow in the Faith with others (Pedram seems to be on the cusp) soon entering the Catechumenate.

It is also with great joy that I announce the establishment of a Mission Station in the west part of Vancouver. This will be a community that is separate from yet very closely related to the Holy Cross Chaplaincy community here at UBC. Bishop Seraphim has not yet given the soon-to-be mission a name (or patron) as he awaits a list of founding members.

This Sunday (March 5th) a meeting will be held at Holy Resurrection at 7:00 PM. I will be sharing with all who wish to come the Vision for this Mission to Vancouver. A Visionary Document will be discussed along with the next steps necessary in planting this Mission.

All are welcome, both people who wish to be founding members and people who wish to learn more about this new work.

Please email (frchrisrb-at-shaw.ca) or call (604-309-6871) me if you are able to attend so we can be sure there are enough refreshments. Some possible venues for worship will also be discussed as well as different ways of becoming involved.

Please pray for this work and for God’s mercy and protection on all who seek to become involved in this historic and eternally significant endevour!

Your servant in Christ,
the priest Christopher
