A Solemn Mass was held at St Thomas’s Church on Saturday, May 10th, 2014, as part of the May Festival in Toronto. We were delighted and honoured to have Bishop Geoffrey Rowell, recently retired Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, visiting with us for the day. Fr Mitchell celebrated and Fr Theo Ipema was the deacon. Fr Harold Nahabedian preached. Also present were Frs Andrews (the rector), Fr Tom Greene, and Fr David Mulholland. About 70 people attended the Mass.
