Church Consecration – The Church of The Holy Spirit – Parish of Fogo Island East

The Consecration of a Church, as our primate reminded us in his dinner address to the congregation and guests of the Church of the Holy Spirit the weekend of May 5th, 2019, is only possible when the efforts, sacrifice and commitment of the people of God has already happened. The weekend celebration began with a Parish Banquet on Friday night with Archbishop Fred Hiltz. On Saturday morning the Parish hosted a congregational breakfast and Saturday evening was a time of fellowship with a rousing Newfoundland kitchen party at the Parish Hall. On Sunday morning the Church of the Holy Spirit was Consecrated by the Rt. Reverend John Watton, and the mortgage was burnt at the end of the service. Read more here:
