Book Club         

 Please join us on Wednesday, May 29 at 7 p.m. in the Chapel to discuss The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah.  In this spellbinding novel, a family of three moves to Alaska to reinvent themselves and to find healing. Life is tough in the wilds of Alaska and the family is tested in ways they could never have imagined. All are welcome to try out the group. Please speak to Sandra Loughton or call the Church Office at 905.884.1301 Ext. 5 for more information.

Men’s Breakfast Group          

  The next Men’s Breakfast will be on Saturday, May 11th, 2019. Coffee and tea will be served at 8:15am, with breakfast in the gym at 8:30 prepared by our UCW friends.  New participants are always welcome. The Men’s Breakfasts are a time of fellowship and camaraderie.  Feel free to contact us if you’re interested in more information. Cost is $10 / person, with net proceeds to the UCW. Please RSVP to Harry Ramsaran ( or 905 508 4758) by Thursday, May 9th. Thank you!

   After breakfast you are invited to the Parlour for a presentation by Rev. Paul Shepherd. Paul was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but has now lived most of his life in the Toronto area.  Growing up he spent 1 year in England and 1 year in Sweden. Paul completed a PhD in atmospheric physics at York University, and worked for over 15 years as an environmental scientist in both the public and private sectors, primarily in the area of resource management, developing mapping applications.  He moved from scientific work into ministry in the United Church of Canada in 2006 because he finds people more fascinating than numbers. Paul has held a number of ministry positions, and is currently working as the minister at Martin Grove United Church, in Rexdale.  He feels called to Rexdale because it is a place with deep needs, and is therefore a great place to have a church.  His main interests in ministry are around emotional/spiritual healing, and social justice. Paul has supported the Presbytery (now the region), being the Chair of the Property and Environment Team of Presbytery for 5 years and is a member of the Shining Waters Regional Executive until the AGM. Paul's hobbies include cycling and scuba diving.

 Looking ahead:  Future dates for 2019:  September 14th, October 19th, November 9th, and December 14th
