Requiescat in pace, David Ashdown

From Bishop Geoff,

Dear friends,

With deep sadness I announce to you today the death of the Most Reverend David Ashdown, former Bishop of Keewatin and Metropolitan of the Ecclesiastical Province of Rupert’s Land.

We pray with thanksgiving for + David’s example of servanthood and faithful commitment to God in the Church. We pray also for the comfort and care of + David’s family and close relationships.

He is fondly and affectionately remembered especially by the Kenora St Alban Deanery whom he led with passion and great resourcefulness, first as an executive archdeacon, and then as bishop.

May + David rest in the love and peace of God in Christ.

+ Geoffrey
