The Rev. Dimas Canjura comes to this parish from his native Custcatancinge, San Salvadore, by way of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Arriving there in May of 1991 Dimas, his wife Violeta and their two children thought that Canada was terribly cold, and then watched in horror as fall turned into winter. Before coming to Canada, Dimas was very involved with Archbishop Oscar Romero's social justice issues and liberation theology in El Salvador. Liberation theology advocates the principles of justice, equality and caring within communities. Dimas brings with him a passion for social justice, a belief in the equality between all men and women, and the strength of his vision of Christian life. In addition to his skills as a marble finisher, Base Community coordinator, politacal candidate, dishwasher, doughnut fryer, landscaper, construction worker and residential care aide with VIHA for 14 years, Dimas holds degrees in psycology from the University of Las Americas and theology from the Vancouver School of Theology, has studied Political Science at the National University and has a Residential Care Certificate from Camosun Colledge. His warmth, humility, caring personality and extensive history of Christian service are a good match for the warmth and spirit of our community. He feels that God brought him here for one reason, to serve.
