St. Andrew’s Parish to mark its centennial year with transition ‘start-up’kit’ campaign

The Parish of St. Andrew’s Okanagan Mission will celebrate its centennial year in 2011, the oldest surviving church in Kelowna.

The year-long celebration began with a special service last Sunday for parishioners, presided over by Archbishop John Privett.

Another centennial project will assist those who have moved from life on the street into transitional programs. The “start-up kits” provide necessary household items as they leave transitional programs and move to independent living situations. 

The parish is collecting basic household necessities for nine start-up kits each with an estimated value of $800 to $1,000.
