My dear colleagues,

I am sending you a note I sent to my congregation at Aylmer UC this morning. This news is hitting us in Quebec quite hard. Please share this info as you are able and come in support if you can. 

You may be having your own events. We all stand together.

I did not hear the news until this morning - the violence in the Mosque in Quebec City. Very quickly connections across Aylmer were made and the religious communities are coming together in support of our Muslim sisters and brothers from the Aylmer Mosque.

November 29 is ‘#Giving Tuesday’ and I have been challenged by the Moderator, the Right Reverend Jordan Cantwell to give a gift using the United Church’s ‘Gifts with Vision’ catalogue.  There are many wonderful choices, both House of Lazarus and Rideau Hill Camp within our Synode Montreal & Ottawa Conference, and others supporting ministry across Canada or with global partners around the world.

Many of you have been watching or participating as Toronto Conference conducted a review of the Rev. Gretta Vosper.  The decisions of the Conference’s sub-Executive were released today and can be found as the first story on the home page at

This is clearly a time when many people will have a variety of emotions as they read the message from the sub-Executive.  Please feel free to share the information and the accompanying documents to anyone who would like to see them.

"...if our sisters can stand up for what is right while facing threats and actual assassinations, we surely cannot sit idly by and allow this business to carry on, protected by ruthless international actors operating with complete impunity."
