Easter Celebration

This Easter I present a collection of images from 4 Catholic Churches here in Montreal. This photo essay is a tribute to 3 very special people: Father Paul Pomkoski, Father Paul Geraghty, and Father Gerry Westphal. Over the years I have come to know and photograph these special teachers. They have all helped to inspire and guide me along my journey.  They were also very patient allowing me to document them at work. As a result I have become the Medical Photographer at the Montreal General Hospital. Thank You all, especially Sister Helen Kilimnik who made some important introductions. And so, I present my Easter Dedication … with a special emphasis on the warmth of how we all come together in community, and how much the church means to us all. Enjoy … especially the last picture which is a food arrangement for all the Slavic people out there!

These 2 wonderful people, Keith and Carole the potters at the Poplar Studio https://www.facebook.com/ThePoplarStudio/ Dear friends that were there for the many different manifestations of my Live Like Water Tea Room … from Hopkin’s Landing to Chinatown Vancouver and Galaxies Beyond. True friends that are right there with you when you need them the most. As much as we can maintain some connection on line we think we’re fine … but true friendships need re-connections and this is what my re-visit to Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast was all about … and so the first part of the first part of this installment  … stay tuned this story will swell with pictures but for now these portraits …
