Clergy Notes — Sunday of All Saints, November 1, 2020

At our Liturgy today Brian Rocksborough-Smith will be inducted into the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster.



Welcome to the Tenth Investiture of New Members to the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster. In this liturgy we honour new people who have distinguished themselves in living out their baptismal identity and purpose in an exemplary way through service within their churches, in their broader communities and in the Diocese. While we are not able to gather all those to be inducted into the Order in one liturgy this year, new members of the Order are being inducted and honoured at the parish level.

I want to thank all those who have contributed to making this important event happen but most of all, thank you, current and new members of the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster. Thank you for your Christ-like faithfulness and your love of the Church.

In Christ,



Brian’s Citation reads:

“Brian is a St. James’ ‘lifer,’ baptized and later married there. As child and adult he has been actively involved across the board – Worship, Canterbury Fayres, Formation, EfM, Home Communions, Narthex, Trustee, Discernment and Canonical Committees, Parish Council Chair, Rector’s and Bishop’s Warden. Brian’s depth of spirituality informs his pastoral care and concern for all, lay and clergy alike. He exercises a singular ministry of encouragement, offering detailed and thoughtful feedback with a heart-beaming smile – he is St. James’ own Barnabas!”
