My brothers and sisters in the Risen Christ, Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

As we celebrate this glorious season of Easter, we all have so very much to be thankful for: spring is coming; our Church is a wonderful place to gather and celebrate our Faith Family's presence; and we have been given, by the grace of God, the incredible gift of new life in Christ. Please join me in taking time as you read this letter to offer a prayer of sincere thanksgiving to God for the generosity of life and love shared so freely with us.

Please be advised that on May 4, 2014 at 12:15pm, the Congregation of St. James Anglican Church Armdale will convene a Congregational Meeting to vote on the following motion:

Preamble: At the Diocesan Synod of2011, every Parish was required to make a decision as to whether the Parish would consider themselves to be an "Affirming Parish." As per the Diocesan instructions, an "Affirming Parish" is a Parish which is willing to provide a liturgy for the Blessing of a civilly-contracted marriage of two people of the same gender. This liturgy of blessing is not a Marriage Rite. It is not a sacrament. It is simply a blessing.

The Motion to be voted upon is as follows:
