Bishop honoured

By on May 1, 2006

Rodney Andrews, bishop of the diocese of Saskatoon, has received the Centennial Commemorative Medal from the government of Saskatchewan for having organized the Bishop’s Tractor Trek as part of the province’s centennial celebrations last year. Last June, Bishop Andrews spent 14 days driving a 1949 model R John Deere tractor across the province to celebrate Saskatchewan’s centennial and to raise money for church causes. The trek, which covered 1,500 kilometres, raised more than $42,000 for projects including AIDS initiatives in Africa and flood relief for Saskatoon’s companion diocese of Guyana.
