Archdeacon to head healing ministry

Published November 1, 2004

Archdeacon Larry Mitchell, rector of St. Stephen’s church, Saskatoon, has been elected North American Warden of the Order of St. Luke the Physician, a worldwide ecumenical group dedicated to the gospel as a healing ministry. Mr. Mitchell was inducted at a eucharist service at the order’s North American conference in June at Glorieta, N.M. He is the first Canadian to hold the post. “To use a secular analogy, I’ll be the CEO (chief executive officer) of the order, doing some public relations, too,” he said in an interview with the Journal. He said he plans to step down in January from his parish, “after almost 39 years in parish ministry, 29 of those years in St. Stephen’s,” however he will remain in Saskatoon. The order has 8,000 members in North America.
