Parish recognized provincially, nationally

By Gisele McKnight

The Parish of the Nerepis and St. John was recently recognized at a ceremony presided over by Lieutenant-Governor Jocelyne Roy Vienneau at Government House in Fredericton.

The annual military ceremony honours employers and educational institutions for their exemplary support of those under them who serve in the Canadian Reserves.

Capt. the Rev. Michael Caines nominated his employer, the Parish of the Nerepis and St. John and his congregation at the Church of the Resurrection in Grand Bay-Westfield.

He and warden Jamie Whittaker, on behalf of the parish, were in Fredericton to collect the provincial award on March 16.

But that’s not the only good news. Not only did Mike’s parish win the provincial award for outstanding support to the Canadian Reserve Force, given by the Canadian Forces Liaison Council, it was also chosen for the national award as well.

In May, Mike will travel to Ottawa to receive the award at a gala affair at the National War Museum.

That’s a lot of honours that came about by chance.
