On Saturday, June 9th, clergy from across the diocese travelled to Mistissini to participate in the ordination of Elizabeth Sipos. Elizabeth has been Deacon-in-Charge of the parish of St. John the Evangelist in Mistissini since her ordination to the Diaconate in October 2011. The Bishop has now appointed her to be Rector of the parish.
The Rev. Canon Cliff Dee gave the homily and spoke of the life and ministry of Scottish Martyr Columba, whose missionary endeavours he related to our work in this diocese.
Guests from the Diocese of Algoma attended as well as Elizabeth’s parents and close family friends. Mrs. Sipos presented a quilted banner to the parish in thanksgiving for their welcome of Elizabeth to their community.
