Mission Awareness Sunday – Sunday May 5 has been designated Mission Awareness Sunday.  It’s an opportunity to draw attention to mission activities in which the Presbyterian Church in Canada is involved.  The worship resources for Mission Awareness Sunday have been written by The Rev. Dr. Lynda Reid.  Lynda is a retired minster of the Presbyterian Church.  For many years she was the education consultant for the Synod of Central, Northeastern Ontario & Bermuda.

The liturgy was written with the help of Katherine Allen.  Katherine retired from the WMS after working for 40 years.  She still leads at various levels of the Society.  Thanks to the members of the WMS of our church, who are leading the service today.
