Harrington-Coopernook Fathers’ Day Memorial

The Anglican Parish of Harrington/Coopernook hosted its annual Fathers’ Day Memorial Service on August 23.

Manning Valley Anglican College (MVAC) students Zade & Harmony Bean, Justin & Gordon Rose and Benny & Mandy Wu helped with the leading of the prayers and the Gospel reading before the congregation of approximately 60 parishioners and visitors.

Parish Priest Father Steve Niland welcomed the MVAC students and explained how this touching act of worship was meeting a significant pastoral for those who were grieving the loss of a father or grandfather within the communities served by the Harrington/Coopernook Anglican Parish.

“Manning Valley Anglican College was privileged to be a part of this special liturgy and we appreciated the hospitality of Fr Steve and his parishioners,” said MVAC chaplain Greg Anderson.

“This was one of a number of ways in which the College continues to link our students with local Anglican congregations across the Manning and Great Lakes region.”
