FREDERICTON – For the fourth year in a row, Bishop David Edwards of the Diocese of Fredericton will be heading across one of the diocese’s archdeaconries on foot to visit parishes, pray with local Anglicans and bear witness to communities on the route. From May 23 to June 5, Edwards will be making his way through the archdeaconry of Woodstock, which covers New Brunswick’s northwest region, including the upper reaches of the Saint John River.
Highlights will include a visit to the McCain Foods factory in Florenceville; attending a meeting of Diocesan Council at Camp Brookwood, an Anglican youth camp; and a visit to a potato packing operation. The pilgrimage will include sections through a nature preserve and other walking trails. It will finish up at All Saints, Magaguadavic. Members of the public are invited to walk alongside the bishop for one or more days.
