Today our friends from Burundi arrived in Edmonton for a visit. Bishop Sixbert, his wife Clotilde, Diocesan Secretary the Rev Dominique, and his wife, Canon Bibiane, arrived after a long journey from our companion diocese of Buyé. Bishop Jane and Tim waited anxiously for our guests to emerge from immigration, and when they finally arrived it was all smiles!
Over the next week our friends will be attending the diocesan ACW conference, participating in an ordination, visiting a few parts of the diocese and meeting a variety of clergy and lay people in our diocese. Maybe you will be one of them!
Watch this space for more updates. For a taste of our companion diocese, please refer to older posts on this blog.
