Recently, the Rt. Rev’d John Watton, Bishop of the Central Diocese announced that Glenn Freake of Port Union has been granted Licenses in Lay-Ministry and Eucharistic Assistant-Ministry in the Parish of Catalina.
On the Third Sunday of Advent, December 13, 2020 the Rev’d Eli Cross presided at an Induction Worship for Glenn at St Peter’s Anglican Church, Catalina. On behalf of the Diocese, Glenn received his two licenses from his wife, Roxanne and mother, Doris both of whom were a motivational force in his vocation.
A side note: Glenn’s mother, Doris was the organist for the service. She takes her regular turn (alternating weeks) at this musical ministry, and shows no sign of slowing down: she is in her mid-eighties!
On Christmas Eve, Vera Payne and Bonnie Wheeler presented St. Paul’s Church in Summerside with a patchwork shirt. Each patch contained an amount of money, totalling $1035. This project was started by their mother, June Wheeler, many many years ago. Their mom has since passed on, but the family carried on her legacy. Many thanks from the congregation of St. Paul’s for this wonderful gesture and monetary donation. God Bless!
