The Langford venue, located 12 kilometers north of downtown Victoria, hosted daily services along with day trips to scenic landmarks that are hallmarks of God’s beautiful creation in the area.
The annual salmon run was beginning in Goldstream Provincial Park, with its historic trees and majestic canyons, trails and ocean inlet. Sun splashed autumn colors spread across thousands of species throughout Butchart Gardens park. Orca and gray whales were spotted on boat tours, while harbor seals were fed along the wharf near the Empress Hotel.
Seniors enjoyed a catered luncheon, highlighted with an interactive discussion about weaving young people into the fabric of the Church. Many relished an evening catered dinner and dance with music from throughout the decades. Memories of high school dances of previous decades were shared by those in attendance.
With many elders in attendance, daily services included split sermons and additional Bible studies presented on the Sabbath. Many brethren found ways to serve others at the Feast, enriching the overall Feast experience. Planning is already underway for hosting the Feast of Tabernacles at a new Victoria venue next year.
