Despite a few wrinkles, like the room being double booked–even Anglicans have some trouble worshipping in a space that is being transformed into a bar for a reception later–the eucharist came off swimmingly.  The final nose-count was 108–yep, 108 from youth delegates to the rather more hoary of head.  It was far beyond the usual suspects.  We had people from all over the country, including the dioceses of Caledonia, Saskatchewan, Fredericton, Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, Algoma, and Moosonee (and those were just the ones I saw as they entered).  +John Chapman (Ottawa) celebrated and Peter Elliott (New Westminster) praught (teach/taught ergo preach/praught) a fabulous sermon.  It was lovely, the a capella singing (in four very respectable parts) was lusty, and I snivelled.  Chris, as official photographer, will add the pics later.  What a way to end the week.
