Dear Friends in Christ,
I am sad to pass on the news that our brother the Rev. Glen Bresee died last night after several weeks of palliative care at Edmonton’s General Hospital. Many of you know well that Glen was Rector of St. Augustine’s from 1963-1981. He had many fond memories of his time at St. Augustine’s. I know that your prayers are for Betty his wife of 60+ years, his two sons Peter and Paul, and their families. Glen’s wishes were that his memorial service be held at st. Augustine’s. His family felt it most appropriate that the timing of his death occurs near Easter as Glen found such delight in the commemoration of Christ’s resurrection. May we mark well Glen’s faith and good works among us.
Peace to you Glen, may you find the fullness of rest and truly rise in Glory with your Lord.
Glen’s Memorial service, a celebration of Holy Communion, will occur on Wednesday, April 5th, 2017, at 11 am at St. A’s
O LORD, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in thy mercy grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last. Amen
(a prayer recited from memory by Glen in his last weeks)
