Topic in Iona
August 22, 2017
During the early afternoon of August 22, diocesan communications were delighted to receive an email with a high resolution photo attachment showing the Anglican Parish of the Church of the Epiphany (Epiphany), Surrey's pilgrim group on the small island of Iona off the coast of western Scotland.
According to the brief note from the Reverend Christine Rowe, Assistant Priest at St. Mary's, Kerrisdale and Regional Dean of Point Grey, the Epiphany pilgrims are just about to "go on pilgrimage around the island."
It looks like they are standing in front of the Iona Abbey with St. Martin's Cross on the right. And lo and behold one of the pilgrims is holding a copy of the Summer 2017 issue of TOPIC, the magazine of the Diocese of New Westminster. It never hurts to have some newsprint handy when you are at the seaside for you may catch a fish or two and be in need of some wrapping.
Hopefully, a future issue of TOPIC will contain some coverage of the Epiphany pilgrim's memorable trip and pilgrimage.
