November 5th, 10:30 am (Massey Theatre, New Westminster)
Our Rector's Warden, Wayne Adams, was inducted into The Order of New Westminster (ODNW), an order that honours faithful and steadfast service amongst lay people in the Anglican Church. This is an honour that Wayne richly deserves. During the pandemic and beyond I have been privileged to observe the kind, yet determined way, in which he interacts with people while juggling the many responsibilities of being a Warden, especially all the varied tasks of being in charge of building maintenance.
Wayne joins a distinguished group of St Thomas inductees that includes current volunteers, Ted Tisdale, Don Rodger, Jan Guretzki, and Deb Edwards.
The purpose of the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster is to honour and give special recognition to lay members of the diocese who have given outstanding service over a significant period of time in their volunteer ministry. The inaugural year was 2009 and initially it was an annual event, since 2015, the Investiture Service takes place every other year.
