Anniversary Celebration Planned for Synod

 on May 29, 2024

In November, Anglicans from Arthur to Fort Erie and all points in between will gather at the Burlington Convention Centre for the 150th Synod of the Diocese of Niagara!

Our sesquicentennial anniversary as a diocese is a milestone worthy of celebration, especially when you begin to ponder all the lives that have been transformed through our witness to the way of Jesus, since the six western counties that now make up Niagara were carved out of the Diocese of Toronto in 1875.

So, it is only fitting that in addition to the regular proceedings of our Synod, we are also planning a special anniversary dinner in the evening of our Synod to mark the occasion. All are welcomed for this ticketed event, which is being generously sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance, our insurer for more than 50 years.

Archbishop Linda Nicholls, 14th primate of the Anglican Church of Canada will be our special guest. During the dinner, she will engage in conversation with Bishop Susan Bell as together they explore and lean into the Synod’s theme: ‘Faith in the Future’, inspired by Jeremiah 29:11. “For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.”

Through the dinner, we will also be expressing our faith in the future by raising funds to support curacies across our diocese through a fund designated for this purpose. Equipping right skilled and well-formed spiritual leaders is crucial for the flourishing of our collective ministry for the next 150 years!

I hope you will join us in celebrating all the ways God’s mission of love has been lived out through our witness and ministry in Southern Ontario throughout the decades. Look for more information in September about how you can reserve your ticket for the special dinner.
