Bishop Michael Smith and Bonnie Anderson, former President of the House of Deputies are headed to Cannon Ball, North Dakota. The Bismarck Tribune tells us why:
Less than a year after being destroyed by a fire, the new St. James Episcopal Church in Cannon Ball on the Standing Rock Reservation will be consecrated.
The historic St. James Church burned to the ground last July 25. In the year since, a new structure has been going up a mile south of Cannon Ball on Big Lake Road South.
The consecration of the new building will take place during the Cannon Ball Flag Day Wacipi, or powwow, at 10 a.m. June 15.
