New pastor at Holy Trinity

Holy Trinity Anglican Church, at 1962 Murray Road in Sooke, welcomed their new minister this June.

Born in El Salvador, Dimas Canjura did various jobs there while studying to become a psychologist.  He came to Canada in 1991 with his wife, Violeta, and two children, spending two years in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, before heading west to B.C.

Dimas came to Victoria in 2008, decided to study for the ministry, and attended the Vancouver School of Theology at UBC, completing all courses in 2013.

He became a deacon of the Church and on June 8, 2014 was ordained a priest.  Rev. Dimas is also Rector in charge at the Church of St. Mary of the Incarnation in Metchosin.

His busy life involves pastoral care, community service, membership in the Sooke Ministerial Association, assisting with the church’s weekly lunch for the needy known as Vital Vittles, and services both Saturday evening and on Sundays.

He is enthusiastic about the church’s outreach activities, the next one being the Harvest Dinner and Silent Auction held annually at the Royal Canadian Legion, where he hopes to greet new friends.

This year the event takes place on Saturday, November 1, 2014, in the usual setting in the Legion’s Upper Dining Hall, 6 p.m. at a cost of $20 per guest.  Cadets of the Sooke Navy League will again assist in serving a turkey dinner.  Tickets are available at the Church, South Shore Gallery and Shoppers Drug Mart.

Come and welcome Rev. Dimas Canjura.
