Ann and Bruce Bodwell were this year's inductees from St John's to the Order of the Diocese of New Westminster. In the history of bestowing this honor very few times has it been given to a husband and wife team. The order was given to Ann and Bruce for their years of dedication, hard work, support and guidance both of St John's and the Diocese as a whole.
The awarding of this special honor was done at Christ Church Cathedral last fall. However, due to health circumstances Bruce was unable to attend. All of St John's was very glad when in May of this year, during our joint Deanery service, Bishop Melissa Skelton was presiding and therefore able to give the Order to Bruce with Ann by his side.
St John's is very proud of Ann and Bruce in their induction as well as truly blessed by their decades of service to the church. Congratulations Ann and Bruce!
