Dawn Elizabeth Oldnall

Dawn used to come to this church many years ago as a youth. If you recall, she had two lung transplants and she was associated with us when she had her first transplant. It is with sadness that we let you know, that she passed away on Friday, February 23rd at Toronto General Hospital. Dawn was only in her 33rd year and was a double lung transplant survivor for 17 years. Dawn’s “Celebration of Life” took place on Wed., February 28th at 1:00 p.m. at Fenelon Falls United Church. Let us keep the Oldnall family in our prayers as they go through this difficult time of loss.

Praying for Others during Lent

The season of Lent is a journey of prayer with Jesus to Good Friday and beyond. The Bible asks us to pray for one another. On February 18, you were invited to join in praying for others in our church family throughout Lent. Don’t let it scare you – the prayer can be as simple as, “God, I pray my church family will know your love.” It is not too late and you can still participate! Envelopes, containing names for prayer, have been placed on the table in the Narthex. Please take one and you are welcome to join the journey!

(Women from Trinity and Providence only until Dec. 31st and open to others on January 1, 2024). A little information about Alanna Mitchell. In the year 2000 she was named the best environmental reporter in the world by the World Conservation Union and Reuters Foundation. She has written 5 books, 1 play and is the recipient of 2 honorary doctorates and many more additional plaudits. This year she was added to the editorial staff of Broadview, the only Canadian magazine focused on national and international issues of spirituality, justice, and ethical living as well as news and perspectives of the United Church of Canada. How blessed are we that she has generously accepted our invitation to lead our retreat! The clock is ticking - climate change is here! The planet is warming. What an enviable opportunity has opened to us! The chance to learn from Alana's expertise, experience and insights will help us all better recognize and understand the crisis.
