On Sunday, September 8th, Bishop Susan visited the Church of Our Saviour The Redeemer (Stoney Creek) and what a joy it was to have her with us.

Bishop Susan Bell and the Rev. Bahman Kalantari enjoying themselves at the potluck.

Bishop Susan officiated and preached an amazing sermon based on the readings for the day. The children of the parish wrote their own prayers about the sayings of Jesus and presented Bishop Susan with a special gift from the parish – a portrait of the church, created by a parishioner many years ago . 

Following the service we enjoyed an amazing potluck lunch together! It was a wonderful day and we all agree that the diocese of Niagara’s future is looking bright under Bishop Susan’s guidance.
