Maiden Voyage

The beautiful cedar canoe in these pictures was a gift from the cathedral to the former Dean, Bob Osborne, to thank him for his ministry here. Members of our parish signed the underside of the canoe and wrote special messages of thanks and well-wishes before it received its final coats of paint.

Dean Bob writes:

Hi everyone,
Here are some pictures of the launch of the canoe last Saturday. It was a fun family event as you can see by the pictures. I am ever so pleased with how the canoe handles in the water. What a wonderful memory knowing that so many of St. John’s people are riding with us on the underside of the cedar planks.  It is a gift I will enjoy for many years.
