On the morning of Sunday, July 3rd, the Bishop of our diocese, the Right Reverend Stephen London visited St. Augustine’s – Parkland for the first time since ascending to that honour back in September of 2021. He wasn’t there to check up on Father Neil but rather had a sudden opening in his busy schedule and felt compelled to come and be with us!
Providing an inspiring sermon and letting us in on some of the challenges that “newbie bishops” face, he lingered after our worship service to chat with many parishioners. Bishop Steve brought his mum to the service, who had traveled from Kansas City, MO to be with him and his family for a couple of weeks.
