Pie night!

On Friday October 12, 2018 the Youth Group learned how to make pie from scratch! Most of the kids, when polled, admitted they had never made a pie completely from scratch. Most had made a pie with a pre made crust. With a little bit of help from our Youth leaders every child, peeled, chopped, mixed and rolled their pie into creation! What a lovely and delicious life skill to learn.

They looked amazing and tasted even better

Season of Creation – Tunkwa Lake Tour

On Saturday October 13, around 40 lucky members of the Cathedral got to participate in the Season of Creation Tunkwa Lake tour. Guided by Carl Pentilchuk,  parishioners were escorted to the site on a luxurious bus. The weather was perfect and a good time was had by all.

The purpose of this lovely fall field trip was to both learn about the natural area of Tunkwa Lake and to celebrate the Eucharist on site amidst prodigious natural beauty.

Enjoy the pictures!

Wonderful Watercolour Workshop

On July 19 & 20th the Cathedral Christian Education Committee hosted
A Beginner’s Brush with Watercolour – With Kathie MacDuff

Participants learned basic watercolour techniques and put them together to create small works of art including something a bit larger at the end of the session. It looks like it was a very good time!!!

Cathedral happenings

A few interesting things to note from the Cathedral this past weekend.

Dean Ken commissioned the Lay Ministers of Word and Sacrament during the service – congratulations to Bud, Margaret and Verna!

It was Barry’s birthday and we celebrated with a cake in the Hall

And finally there is a new sign on the front door that reflects the change in the Territory name!

Never a dull moment here

Outdoor service – June 17, 2018

Another tremendous outdoor service with Anglican, United and Lutheran congregations in Kamloops’ MacDonald Park.

A special collaboration with LMO Metis Social Services on the north shore. Lots of singing, a special “gutteral” anthem, long lineups at the smudging tent, Holy Eucharist, and a growing commitment to healing and reconciliation between Inuit, Metis, First Nations and settlers.

Successful Strawberry Tea

The Cathedral is one of the few remaining venues in Kamloops that host a strawberry tea social on an annual basis. This makes this event very popular in the community and we get many calls for more information leading up to the event.

As always this year’s Strawberry Tea was a huge success! Thanks in large part to Rae Long and her dedicated volunteers.
