The Diocese of Kootenay has scheduled its 63rd Synod for April 20-22, 2018 at the Diocesan Centre in Kelowna.  Stay tuned for more information.

Archbishop John Privett invites every member of the Diocese to a time of reflection and prayer, beginning in Pentecost, on the very personal matter of vocation. It begins with a simple question: “What are the gifts, talents and qualities God has blessed me with in my life?”   And then follows a second question: “How am I offering those for the mission of God in the world?”
