After many months of discernment, Bishop Donald Phillips is pleased to announce the appointment of Vincent Solomon to the new position of Urban Indigenous Ministry Developer. Vincent will begin this work on May 1, 2016. This appointment is the culmination of much hard work by the UIMD working group, with input from the Rupert’s Land Indigenous Circle and a confirmation and blessing by members of the Elders’ Circle. Thank you to all who have been part of the process and have been upholding them in prayer.
Vincent will be installed in this new position at our annual Mothering Sunday service at St. John’s Cathedral on Sunday, March 6, at 7:00 p.m. The Bishop hopes that a large crowd of people from across the Diocese will attend the annual gathering and celebrate Vincent’s role in this new position.
