Quebec’s Anglicans gather to discuss change for the future, to consider same-sex blessings, and celebrate the ordination of four new priests
Synod will conclude on Sunday morning with a celebration at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Quebec City, which will include the ordination of four new priests who represent some of the Anglican church’s diversity. Two of those to be ordained as priests are women, two are still in their 20s, and one is gay.
Members of the media are welcome to attend the service of ordination on Sunday, November 4, at 11:00 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity (31 rue des Jardins in Quebec City). Bishop Drainville will be available for interviews following the service, which is expected to last approximately 90 minutes.

It is one of 29 dioceses of the Anglican Church of Canada, which is a member church of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The diocesan bishop, cathedral, and administrative offices reside in Quebec City.
