Bishop Anne Germond is pleased to announce that, at the opening service of Synod 2017, two new canons will be installed in St. Luke's Cathedral - one clergy and one lay.
The Rev. Margaret Johnston serves in the Deanery of Muskoka as the Honourary Assistant at Trinity-St. Alban's Church, Bala and All Saint's Church, MacTier. Margaret's deep devotional life, the authenticity of her walk with Christ, along with her warmth and compassion are an inspiration to many people.
Mr. Henry Gaines has served in the Deanery of Algoma as the Lay Incumbent of St. Mark's Heyden since 1997. In his time at St. Mark's, Henry has encouraged that community in their walk with Christ as a pastor and teacher. Attendees at the diocesan Early Ministry Conferences at St. Mark's have experienced genuine Christian hospitality from that community. This was due in no small part to Henry's leadership.
We extend our congratulations and our thanks to Margaret and Henry for their faithfulness and commitment to Christ’s church. Be assured of our prayers as you prepare for your installation.
