Timothy Vickery was recieved by Br. Charles McMulkin, Director of Associates, as an Assoicate of Holy Cross, Canada, on May 24. Tim is a member of the ministry team at Sanctuary Toronto in the downtown core.
As usual in early June, we attended our Annual Chapter (A.G.M.) at Holy Cross Monestary in upstate New York along with members from our two houses in the USA and our African house. We prayed and spent time together; had fruitful discussions about our life together; and participated in a conference titled "Jesus as Sacrificial Victim", led by theologian James Alison. For fun we took a boat cruise up the Hudson River Valley. Fr. L- R: Br. Adrian, Br. David, Prior, and Mrs Suzette Cayles, Companion of the Order of the Holy Cross, wait to board "The Rip Van Winkle".
Br. Christian Swayne was celebrated at the Priory on May 24, the actual date of his Ordination 60 years ago. (His anniversary was recognized at St. James Cathedral in April.) From L-R: Christian's sister and Companion of the Order of the Holy Cross Patricia Brown, Br. Christian, Christian's Brother-in-Law Charlie Brown.
Our Priory community toasted The Rev. Br. Brian Youngward at dinner on May 16 - the anniversary of his Ordination. Br. Brian retired after a lengthy Incumbency at St. Paul's Rexdale, Toronto (among other parish appointments.) He was very much loved and respected at St. Paul's for his pastoral care and practical service.
