Season of Vocation

Kokanee's 125th

Donation to UBC

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?” 


The Diocese of Kootenay has donated its refund from the Residential School Settlement fund to UBC to support a cultural safety curriculum addressing barriers facing indigenous people’s access to health care.  Click on the picture to view the video (2:45)
