This upcoming weekend is a big one for the Centre for Christian Studies. This is the weekend when we celebrate the graduation of five students who have completed their training in diaconal ministry – Vicky Aldersley, Mary Elliott, Kimiko Karpoff, Debra Kigar, and Mary Elizabeth Piercy. It’s also the weekend when we celebrate Mary Ellen Moore for her contributions to ministry, the church, and the Centre for Christian Studies by naming her as a Companion of the Centre.
The celebrations take place this Saturday night at a banquet, and Sunday afternoon (3 pm) at a worship service being held at St. George’s Crescentwood Anglican church in Winnipeg.
Mary Ellen is from Red Deer, Alberta. Vicky comes from Oakville, Ontario. Kimiko comes from New Westminster, BC. Mary Elizabeth is from Bracebridge, Ontario, and both Mary and Deb are from Hamilton, Ontario. No doubt they have friends and supporters from all over who would like to express their congratulations and best wishes. Here is your opportunity!
Leave a comment below for any of our grads and Companion (or all of them as a group!). Let them know you’re thinking about them and wishing them well.
