A special announcement from the Diocese -
On June 16, the Synod of the Diocese of Rupert’s Land elected The Ven. Geoffrey J.J. Woodcroft to be Bishop Coadjutor for Rupert’s Land.
Geoff will be consecrated at a service at St. John’s Cathedral at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 12, 2018. All are welcome to attend.
Geoff will commence his ministry as Bishop Coadjutor on October 16, and will work with me for approximately one month. I have announced the date of my retirement as November 15, 2018, so on November 16, Geoff will become the 13th Bishop of the Diocese of Rupert’s Land.
The Diocese of Rupert’s Land is establishing an Episcopal Ministry Transition fund to assist with all of the costs associated with preparing for new episcopal ministry. This will necessitate the purchase of a variety of copes, mitres, cassocks, “purple” shirts, pectoral cross, ring, and more, totalling approximately $6,000.00. We are inviting members of the diocese who wish to do so, to make a gift in support of these costs. Cheques may be made payable to “the Diocese of Rupert’s Land” and sent to 935 Nesbitt Bay, Winnipeg, MB R3T 1W6. We also have the capability of processing credit card payments through the Synod Office. We are pleased to be able to offer a charitable receipt in the amount of your gift. Your generosity is appreciated.
--Bishop Don Phillips
