Praise be to God for the growing presence of ANiC in Calgary.
On June 30, 2013, the Rev. Tom Chi-Tong Lo was ordained to the Diaconate (transitional). Almost 150 people gathered to witness the ordination and to give their support to Tom and Irene. It was a blessing to see the strong bonds of unity and fellowship among ANiC churches in Calgary as the people from Grace Anglican, Good Shepherd South Asian and Good Shepherd Cantonese celebrated this joyous occasion together. Many ecumenical friends from Chinese churches and theological seminary in Calgary participated as well. This was truly an encouragement to the growing ministry of the Good Shepherd Calgary church plant among the Chinese community. May the Lord continue to bless the ministry of Rev. Tom Lo and the people in Calgary.
