Apostle of the North

Employees of the Archdiocese of Vancouver at 150 Robson were treated to a pizza lunch and a wonderful 30-minute film called Apostle of the North. The film by director and cinematographer Larry Lynn takes an inspiring look at the life and work of Bishop Gary Gordon, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Whitehorse (encompassing the Yukon Territory and Northern British Columbia). In the film, Bishop Gordon "invites us to join him as he travels through this vast territory, meeting God's people, shepherding his flock, and bringing the sacraments to remote communities spread out over an area the size of France." The film has breathtaking shots of the Yukon landscape and inspiring testimonies from Bishop Gordon, the missionaries and the people of the diocese of Whitehorse. Executive producer Jack Ong was also present at the showing to answer questions and hand out DVD copies of the film.
