The Anglican Church of Canada believes this.
We believe that, too.
Our Parish is an extension of the ministry of the Bishop of New Westminster. The Bishop, as chief pastor and steward of the Anglican Church in the Lower Mainland, has entrusted their sacramental and pastoral ministries to the priests and deacons of the Diocese. Those who pray at the Parish of St. Dunstan can be assured of one's connection to the ancient catholic church.
We also believe that God has placed us in the Fraser Valley to offer prayer for the world and our communities.
We believe that God connects with us in Baptism, Bread & Wine, regular Confession & Absolution, Prayers for Healing, Times of Spiritual Commitment, the Blessing of Relationships, and in our ongoing Discernment of our Vocation. We call these connections sacraments.
We believe that God's Word (Jesus) can be discerned in Holy Scripture with care and diligence.
We believe that God has a wonderful future for this world and invites us to share in it, even when that future is obscured by violence.
We believe we have a personal and communal responsibility to do all we can to promote justice, peace, and joy - the signs of God's presence in the world.
Whether you are able to join in prayer and thanksgiving at the Parish of St. Dunstan, or not, we believe you are part of this community.
