All Souls

In this month’s issue, Bishop Geoffery Woodcroft writes about discipleship that extends beyond the walls of church buildings. As the institution of the church changes and is in a period of decline, we must continue to go about our work with grace, carrying out the love of God to all our relations.

In the community catechesis, Matthew Bowman reflects on the community of saints and the remembering of those who have departed during Allhallowstide.

Reverend Canon Donna Joy writes a profile on Deacon Penny Cumine at St. Alban’s, honouring her legacy of worship leading to faithful service in her abundant ministries in downtown Kenora.

An interview with Ryan Turnbull explores his new position as Disocean Discipleship Developer. Turnbull reflects on the history of the Anglican church that has led us to this present moment and explores how he sees community gathering around the risen Christ and what his hopes are for facilitating greater community knowledge sharing across the Diocese.

At 45 years old, the Thelma Wynne project continues strong. This profile on the work of the project and its founding honours those who have dedicated time and resources to providing care for young mothers in Winnipeg.

And finally, a profile on St. Alban’s Cathedral in Kenora brings light onto the incredible ministry and hospitality of this community. As a companion piece to the profile on Penny Cumine, the profile shares more about the community context and work of this parish.
