Imagine -- there is no water!

Become part of a formal request that Tantalus Labs’ commercial water licence be either declined or made restrictive in such a way that it will have no negative impact on neighbouring wells. 
Their application is putting our communities at a too great of a risk for our water supply.

Thornhill did it again!


Today the Thornhill people and their friends competed enthusiastically in a relay pumpkin race on Whonnock Lake. The Atlantic team was declared the winner although they used some unconventional techniques. A rich potluck lunch followed the hilarious event.

Visit of Bishop to the Anglican Church in Whonnock

Holy Spirit Anglican Church in Whonnock was filled for the visit of the Right Reverend Melissa Skelton, Bishop of New Westminster on June 19.  Click here for photos.
Bishop Skelton conducted worship, chatted over lunch with parishioners, conducted a Q&A session, and led parish members through a review of goals, resources and needs. 
The beautiful and historic church is one of only a handful of country churches among the 58  parishes of the Anglican Diocese which stretches from the Sunshine Coast to Hope. 
Bishop Melissa was a corporate executive before being called to the ministry, serving in parishes in the US (most recently in Seattle) before being elected Bishop just over two years ago to oversee the congregations in this Diocese. 
In recognition of Aboriginal Sunday, the parish presented her with artwork donated by local artist Bill Parry.  A sign for the Memorial Garden  was dedicated in honour of the late Bud Hjorleifson, long-time member of the parish.  Holy Spirit defines itself by its mission statement, "Open Minds, Inquiring Hearts, Diverse People on a Spiritual Journey".  
Our worship services are Sundays at 10 am. and all are welcome.
