The St Agnes Day luncheon on January 26 was a festive affair catered by Sharing Abundance. Four kinds of breakfast sandwiches were on order, and the Scouts served the tables.
Dave and Judy Brear taught a Lego Sunday school for the Beavers and Cubs. The theme was "what would God have us do" and the kids made creative use of Lego to express their thoughts.
Our special guest was the Executive Archdeacon of the Diocese of New Westminster, the Venerable Douglas Fenton. He presented awards to two local heroes who have distinguished themselves through assistance to refugees in our community. Gulnar Carlisle and Cynthia Bunbery were presented with a certificate of thanks from the parish of St Agnes. They were also presented with a handmade pottery dish crafted by Shannon Muir, chair of the Diocesan Refugee Committee. Archdeacon Fenton was also presented with a gift of thanks for his support of refugee sponsorship from the Synod office.
Our local 'guardian angel,' Balraj Hundal, was presented with a certificate and gift to thank him for his help over the years with keeping our building in good shape and watching out for floods and other problems. Raj lives across the lane from the church and keeps an watchful eye on the property.
