HF Retired Clergy Online Gathering

February 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

On behalf of Horseshoe Falls Regional Council, the Human Resources Commission has been seeking to redress a lack of connection between the regional council and retirees since the dissolution of presbyteries. This has included creating a contact list of retirees in our region and finding a connection point in the structure. Happily, the Human Resources Commission has included relating to retirees as part of its mandate and our Minister for Pastoral Support, the Rev. Kevin Steeper, will also serve as a resource in this effort.Our next step is to host a regional council wide online gathering:

  • to connect with one another,
  • to explore how we all might best relate to one another;
  • to listen to the ideas you may have for gatherings in smaller groupings and how the region might best support you.

There will be an opportunity for you to gather in geographic groupings to self-organize.From an earlier email to many of you, we received a suggestion that we might invite a national staff person to join us at a gathering once a year to hear about the wider church and to answer questions you may have. General Secretary, the Rev. Dr. Michael Blair, has graciously agreed to be with us for part of our meeting to do just that.Save the Date!Join us on February 13, 2024 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. online. Watch for the meeting link to come after the new year.We recognize that not everyone has online access. If you know of a colleague who would appreciate being present, perhaps you could invite them to join  you.
