Sheila Cook has been worshipping at St. Columba's her whole life. She is our Pacific Mountain Regional Council LeaderShift Team Member working alongside Christine Muise with "O'man's Nam'a- We Are One". Sheila is currently enrolled in the Vancouver School of Theology Indigenous Studies Program with long-term plans to become a priest living and serving on the North Island. As part of that journey in September 2022 Sheila was ordained as a transitional Deacon serving the Mid-North Island. Currently she is leading worship at St. Columba's Church and Alert Bay Anglican Church as well as supporting community members in our our "Every Morning Sanctuary" early morning drop-in.

The Diocese of British Columbia acknowledges that for thousands of years the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwaka’wakw peoples have walked gently on the unceded territories where we now live, work, worship, and play. We seek a new relationship with the first peoples here, one based in honour and respect, and we thank them for their hospitality.
We thank you for registering to attend in-person worship at St. Columba's Port Hardy. A reminder that, at this time, people are respectfully asked to worship via our online option if they are unvaccinated, though we are not checking proof of vaccination at worship services. We also ask everyone to evaluate their current health status using provincial guidelines each time they arrive at the church and wear a mask at all times in the building.
