From the article by Susan Haskell in the December issue of Anglican Life:
Every year, on the Feast of St. Luke, Bishop Peddle celebrates the Eucharist in the chapel at St. Luke’s. This year, history was made on the October 18th Feast Day when the Bishop formally instituted the ecumenical faith community there as a “special and unique” entity within the Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Ecumenical Congregation of St. Luke, as it is now known, is thought to be the first of its kind within the Anglican Church of Canada, and will hereafter be recognized as a stand-alone community within the Anglican Church, contributing to the collective ministry of its Diocese. The Rev’d Christopher Fowler was inducted as Vicar of the congregation during the celebratory Eucharist, and a post-service reception was enjoyed by all.
