Please join us in celebrating our 5th Feast Day as a community.
We usually celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Dec. 12th on the actual day with a service and feast after at Samaritan House. However, this year because the renovations to the house are not finished and because Dec 12 is a weekday, we are celebrating the Feast Day on the following Sunday, Dec. 18th. Please see details below.
In collaboration with Salal + Cedar, we will be holding our next service (Sunday Sept. 4th) outdoors in Pacific Spirit Park.

Meet in the St. Anselm parking lot

Salal + Cedar Watershed Discipleship Community is a ministry of the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster, we worship outdoors and have a vocation for growing capacity for environmental justice in the lower Fraser Watershed, Coast Salish Territory.
Due to an unfortunate convergence of absences of community members who do set up, coffee, music etc. and Vikki’s flagging energy levels, it was decided that there would be no service this Sunday. Next community service will be Oct. 4th, the feast of St. Francis.
