We are an Anglican parish in the Diocese of British Columbia, and a member of the Anglican Church of Canada.
Did you know we celebrate the birth of St John the Baptist - just after the spring solstice as the days are getting shorter and John proclaimed in John 3.30 "He must increase but I must decrease."?
We celebrate the birth of Jesus after the winter solstice because the days are getting longer and "the true light has come into the world and the darkness will not overcome it".
The commemoration of the saints is an important part of our Anglican tradition. We commemorate the saints and acknowledge their contribution to the life of the Church through the inspiration they exemplify through Christ's living example found in their lives. We acknowledge their lives on the date of their death - which we also do for St John the Baptist on Aug 29th.
