2015 ODNW - Jim Riley

James Smith Riley - St Anne, Steveston

In the late 1980s, a casual request for help, led Jim to a ministry of caring for the physical plant of the parish. Jim repairs everything and anything. No job is beyond his reach or knowledge including fixing roofs, repairing stairs, patching a leaky water line, repairing asphalt in the parking lot, returning recycling or removing leaves to the Richmond yard-nothing is too much for Jim. Jim gives generously, caring for the building that is his spiritual home.
