Dear Members of St. Martin’s,

I understand and appreciate that this week and the coming days will be difficult for you all.  I can imagine your grief and sadness at the loss of your Church.  Please know I am here for you in any way that I can help.  

Having said this, I also know that change can lead to new opportunities.  It gives us great pleasure that a number of you have chosen to celebrate the grace of God with us at St. John’s Anglican Church. We know your presence in our congregation will be truly a blessing, and we look forward to praying, celebrating, and coming together as a community.  As a caring and welcoming congregation, we look forward to sharing God's love and blessings with you in the years to come. May our love and faith increase as we worship together.

We would like to invite you to our Welcome Lunch to be held at St. John’s on Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 12 noon.  Bishop John will be joining us and we do hope that you can attend.  Please call Leeann, our Parish Administrator at 604-986-1151 to RSVP for the event, or email the office at  If you would like to receive our email announcements, please provide Leeann with your contact information.

Until then, let us once again welcome you to St. John’s.  If you have any questions or if I can support you pastorally or spiritually in any way through this time of transition, please do not hesitate to call me at 778-989-7176.

Many Blessings, Patrick
