The Boniface Speakers Program was established by the Vestry and the Rev. Canon Edward M. Copland to bring the brightest and best in religion to this parish and community. Since the mid 1990s, we have enjoyed the visits of distinguished theologians, authors, musicians, and others key to our understanding of what it means to be a Christian in the world.
To continue this ministry, the Vestry initiated the Boniface Speakers Fund at Easter 2011 to honor the ministry of the Rev. Canon Edward M. Copland, Rector 1991-2011. We are thankful for the founding gifts that established this fund, and welcome additional gifts to ensure that we continue to enjoy the brightest and best in religion at Saint Boniface.
