From Wednesday, May 6th through to Saturday, May 9th, representatives from across the Diocese of Algoma met in Sault Ste. Marie for the 47th session of Synod. The theme for this gathering was “Lift Up Your Hearts” and lift up our hearts unto the Lord we did!
We were blessed to witness two ordinations at the opening Eucharist and to have the Most Rev’d Fred Hiltz, Primate of Canada, with us for the duration of synod. Of course there was business to attend to, however through it all there was a keen awareness of the Spirit at work in our midst.
Watch for more posts with highlights on Synod in the next little while, however until then, please take the time to read +Bishop Stephen’s charge to the Synod of the Diocese of Algoma 2015.
