As a regional dean, Jonathan Crane who is rector of St. Augustine of Canterbury, Edmonton, says he appreciates his role in helping  to “shape a culture of relationship and sharing within our area,” as well as the opportunity to be a “pastoral presence” and build a “structure of unity between our parishes.” Photo: Alex Meek
