Trinity Shared Ministry welcomes Bishop Barbara Andrews

By Leslie Ross

Trinity Shared Ministry will welcome Bishop Barbara Andrews on Sunday, July 15th.

She is the congregation’s Anglican Bishop. During the time that the Rev. Brian Krushel, the pastor/priest/minister of Trinity Shared Ministry in Clearwater and the Church of St Paul in Barriere, is on sabbatical, individuals from all three of our denominations have been invited to lead worship.

The congregation is delighted that she is available to lead worship and preside at the Eucharist in both Trinity Shared Ministry (9 a.m.) and the Church of Saint Paul (11 a.m.)

The Right Reverend Barbara Andrews is the Suffragan Bishop of the Territory of the People, which used to be known as the Anglican Parishes of the Central Interior.

Although Bishop Barbara has a very formal role within the Anglican Church of Canada, she has a delightful sense of humour and a warm presence.

Bishop Andrews was ordained a priest in 1998.

She became Bishop in June 2009 when elected Bishop Suffragan and consecrated later that year at a service in St. Paul’s Cathedral, Kamloops.

Previous work included street ministry in an inner city parish in Winnipeg and the Director of the Sorrento Retreat and Conference Centre in the Shuswap.

She has a strong passion for social justice ministry. As well, First Nations ministry and connections in indigenous communities are a priority.

She brings a personal knowledge to that work because her father is a Cree from northern Alberta. Further information about her will be found in a biography on the Territory of the People website at

For those in the North Thompson with an Anglican background, this service would certainly be an opportunity for you to experience your Anglican roots since one of the Anglican orders of service will be used.

Trinity Shared Ministry meets at St. James’ Catholic Church at 324 Grant Road next to the Fire Hall. All are welcome.

During the rest of the summer, two people will be leading worship. The Rev. John Boyd, an ordained minister of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, visits from Kamloops on July 29, August 5, and August 26.

Linda Ervin, a commissioned diaconal minister in the United Church of Canada living in Penticton, will lead worship on July 22, August 12, and August 19.

As is the parish’s practice, communion will be served each week in the Church of St Paul and on the first and third Sundays in Trinity Shared Ministry.
