The small mission parish of Saint Aidan Orthodox Church in Cranbrook hosted a 3-day conference on a timely and relevant topic at the Royal Alexandra Hall over the weekend of Oct. 13 -15. About 85 attendees came from many places in the United States, BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. Priests and pastors from several Christian communities as well as a good cross section of Christians and others were united in their appreciation for the depth of the lectures. We were blessed to have local Ktunaxa Elder Marty Williams open our conference with some heartfelt words and a Ktunaxa prayer of blessing.

What is the number one thing that pains priests about dealing with those who are facing death?

Too often, it is the fact that even faithful people have no idea how to prepare themselves for a Christian end, how to face medical challenges with faith in God, and to ready themselves at the time of their parting from this life.
