    A Show Of Faith

    A ceremony of song and prayer at St. Matthew's Cathedral installed the Rev. William Cliff as the seventh bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Brandon on the first of March. The newest bishop, who now is known as the Rt. Rev. Cliff, replaced Rt. Rev. James Njegovan who retired last summer. After Bible passages were read - first in Cree then in English - as well as a sermon and hymns sung, the audience erupted in applause and the assembled crowd then embraced each other in a show of fellowship.
