Major Sandra Stokes will be formally installed as the new divisional commander of the Salvation Army in Bermuda on Sunday.

The public are invited to attend the leadership affirmation service for Major Stokes, who took over the post from Major Frank Pittman last month.

A Salvation Army spokesman said: “Major Sandra Stokes was previously the corps officer of North York Temple, Ontario, and was appointed as divisional commander, divisional director for women’s ministries, divisional secretary for spiritual life development, Bermuda Division, effective June 29, arriving in Bermuda July 26.

“Major Stokes is from Gander, Newfoundland, and has been an ordained Salvation Army officer for the past 29 years and studied at The Salvation Army’s College for Officer Training and at Guelph University.

“She is keenly interested in leadership development through spiritual life development.”

He added: “The chief secretary and secretary for women’s ministries colonels Lee and Deborah Graves will be in Bermuda to conduct the affirmation service on Sunday and will be joined by the divisional band, praise Team, soldiers and friends. The Salvation Army wishes to invite the Bermudian Public to join us at this celebration.”

The service will be held at the North Street Citadel in Hamilton at 4pm.
