We sadly announce the passing of the Rev. Canon John Jordan in Thunder Bay on January 24th. Honourary Assistant with the Parish of West Thunder Bay, Canon John has ministered in many communities during his 63 years as an Anglican priest: North Bay, Cobalt, and Thunder Bay. He was Editor of the Algoma Anglican from 1979 to 1981.
In 2008 he was awarded Honourary Life Membership of the Algoma Church Society.
Archdeacon Deborah Kraft describes this dearly loved soul in these words: “John was a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. John loved the Lord, loved the Anglican Church, loved his dearly departed wife, Phyllis, and his family. John faithfully prayed for the Bishop, and all of us each and every day. He will be missed.”

We offer our condolences to his family and ask for God’s comfort and assurance for those who mourn.
