Peter Elliott

Peter Elliott, Rector of Christ Church Cathedral and Dean of New Westminster in the Anglican Church of Canada.

Peter, who will be a panelist on the Spiritpride Interfaith Panel, is a well loved and respected leader in the Vancouver community and an active in the work of the Anglican Church nationally and internationally. Peter has been advocating for more than two decades to have same-sex relationships approved by the Anglican denomination, and looks forward to the day when other gay and lesbian Anglican couples in Canada can have a wedding consecrated in their church.

As dean of one of downtown Vancouver’s most well-known Christian congregations and as a delegate to the church’s national convention last year in Toronto, Peter is more than pleased his colleagues finally voted to approve same-sex marriages.
