November 5th, 10:30 am (Massey Theatre, New Westminster) -- Former Warden and ongoing helper extraordinaire, Linda Burton was inducted into The Order of New Westminster (ODNW) this morning. The ODNW honours faithful and steadfast service amongst lay people in the Anglican Church. This is an honour that Linda richly deserves.
She is a model to me and to many in our parish of a kind, caring, attentive person who always has the best intentions for the people of the parish in mind. And she does it with grace and humour.
The purpose of the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster is to honour and give special recognition to lay members of the diocese who have given outstanding service over a significant period of time in their volunteer ministry. The inaugural year was 2009 and initially it was an annual event, since 2015, the Investiture Service takes place every other year.
