Order of the Diocese of New Westminster (ODNW) Parish Investiture Service
On November 1, 2020, Fran Froelich was commissioned as a member of the Order of the Diocese of
New Westminster. Ginny Jennings, Senior Warden, read the Citation from the Archbishop.
Rev. David Price presented the medal and pin. Archbishop Melissa preached a wonderful pre-taped
sermon on the All Saints Gospel from Matthew, the Beatitudes of Jesus.
These awards are given every two years in recognition of exceptional service to the parish, the wider church
and the community. Usually, the medals are presented by the Bishop or Archbishop in a ceremony in
New Westminster. COVID restrictions resulted in permission being given to parish priests to present the awards.
Fran feels called to a life-long ministry of service. She is motivated by love from, and for, the Creator. The images of other ODNW memers at All Saints include Sylvia Laughlin, Fred Ward, Karol Henrotte, Virginia Jennings, Richard Warda, Douglas MacAdams, Wendy (Young) MacAdams and Jeanne Hope (not shown).
