I was very glad to see an insert on religious orders of the Anglican Church of Canada in the February edition of the Anglican Journal. The ministry of these religious orders is vital to our beloved church. The help of the Order of the Holy Cross was very valuable to me in terms of vocational discernment, and the connection with them of spiritual direction and friendship continues to be greatly important to me in my ministry today. The knowledge that the religious orders are always, constantly, at prayer for the ministry of the wider church is greatly comforting. Thank you to all members of religious orders of the Anglican church for your much needed ministry in our midst!
