Canons Visits: The Rev. Canon Betsy Ivey – St. Mary’s Church, Philadelphia, September 3, 2017


One of the perks of doing God’s work as Canon for Resources and Support is visiting different parishes on Sunday. What a wonderfully diverse parish I discovered at St. Mary’s on Bainbridge Street this morning! Long-term Supply Fr. Mondyl Philips from Kerala, South India, informed us today is the beginning of the celebration of the Hindu feast of Onam, a cultural festival for SI Christians. Bishop Gutiérrez will make his Visitation there next Sunday.
