St. James’ Celebrates 165 Years with Primate Fred Hiltz

The parish of St. James, Winnipeg, celebrated its anniversary in style on Sunday, with dozens of parishioners and guests decked out in period costume at the old church building. Primate Fred Hiltz preached an excellent sermon and was a friendly and welcome face in the Diocese throughout the weekend. Primate Fred met with about 60 parishioners in the Kenora – St. Alban archdeaconry on Friday to discuss the upcoming national synod. He also met with about 70 parishioners in Winnipeg on Saturday, focusing in particular on the conversation about indigenous self-determination on the table for Synod. Asked by one parishioner if voting down the proposed changes to the marriage canon would put away the conversation for good, the Primate responded, “No. It will be back at the 2019 Synod either way.”
