Kevin's sermon can be viewed from the 28:30 mark of the service recording below. As promised, kevîn has provided here some added information about a lesser-known Canadian whose face is on one of our loonies. In his sermon, kevîn said:

Elizabeth MacGill born in 1905 (d.1980) (around the same time as the birth of St. Clement’s) here in Vancouver, BC. According to the Canadian Mint, “Elsie” “was a person of brilliant mind and unconquerable spirit. A woman of many firsts, she led a trail-blazing career in aeronautical engineering and was a passionate and effective advocate for gender equality in the workplace and beyond.” Her mother Helen MacGill was the first woman in BC to become a Judge, and her father was a deacon in the Anglican Church of Canada.
