Reverend Matthew McMillan’s appointment to St. Mary’s in Richmond Hill

Dear Friends;

This email has been sent to keep you updated on some developments that were shared this Sunday (16th) at our two morning services.  
Today was Fr. Matt's last Sunday before starting his summer holidays and the Bishop asked the wardens of our parish to make an announcement on his behalf with regards to Fr. Matt being appointed to lead a new parish.   Please find attached below a copy of the text shared this morning.  Also attached is the website for Fr. Matt's new parish.  
We know this news will come as a shock to many, as it was a shock to us as your wardens as well.  We will all miss Fr. Matt and we wish him and his family well, as they start preparing for this transition.  
We look forward to an opportunity to thank him for his ministry among us on his last 3 Sundays which are listed in the announcement below.  We ask the congregation to stay tuned as plans are developed for a formal celebration.  
Yours Sincerely,
 The Wardens of St. Peter's, Churchill  &  St. John's, Cookstown
The Wardens of both churches will share information with the congregations as it becomes available.

Interim Minister Update

Rev. A.V. (Terry) Bennett will be our Interim Clergy beginning on Monday, September 4th, 2017. Rev. Bennett began his ministry in 1979, serving several parishes across Ontario. Most recently, he served as rector at St. James in Orillia for 12 years. 

Rev. Terry has served in several parishes in Northern and Eastern Ontario, as well as numerous postings as Padre and Chaplain to various branches of the Royal Canadian Legion and assorted Ontario hospitals. His most recent posting was as Rector of St. James, Orillia.

Please join us in welcoming Rev. Terry and his wife, Leslie to our Parish of Churchill and Cookstown.

In order to begin the journey of finding a replacement Priest, we will be holding a Vestry meeting on September 10th, after the service at St. Peter's around 10:15 a.m. and at St. John's on Sept. 24th at 12:30-12:45 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to elect a Selection Committee to navigate this process. 

 

 

Innisfil Refugee Program: Khalid and Omar have arrived!

Khalid and Omar

Khalid & Omar arrived safely on Wed. May 24th after a long 10 hour flight from Turkey.  They were met by members of local churches that helped to raise funds and support them on their journey to their new home in Canada. They have begun to get oriented to our community and the work of getting their health care, ESL programs and translators are all in place.  Thank you again to everyone for all your support of this family and our church’s efforts towards this program.  It would not be happening without your help! Please help us welcome Khalid and Omar to their new home. If you have questions, please call the office at 705-458-1801.
