  Iona Announcements

Evangel Hall
Once again we will be hosting
a Sunday evening community dinner and worship service
at Evangel Hall on Adelaide St. West. 
This is an opportunity for every member of our congregation to share
God’s love with members of their community, as we prepare, deliver, serve,
and join them in a nutritious meal, and afterwards,
worship and fellowship with them. 
For some, this may be the only time they might receive
a good dinner, in a relaxed, comfortable and welcoming setting,
and a chance to worship designed just for them.
Perhaps you remember the Joy we experienced during our visit
to the Hall last year. Please join us as we begin to prepare for this event. 
We need volunteers to purchase, prepare and serve food,
drive to and from, and be in fellowship with our guests during dinner and worship.

New Parish Nurse Joins the
Tri-Congregational Parish Nursing Ministry

March 2016

Margaret Black (right), who began the Tri-Congregational
Parish Nursing Ministry in 2001, welcomes our new associate,
Maureen McNeish (left), RN, BScN. Maureen is very well
qualified for this position as she has completed all three levels
of the InterChurch Health Ministries Parish Nursing Program.
In addition she has a post-graduate certificate in Mental Health Nursing
from the Canadian Nurses’ Association. Maureen has 3 years
experience as a parish nurse at both an Anglican and a
Presbyterian church in Toronto, so clearly God has prepared
her well for the Tri-Congregational Churches! Marg and
Maureen, who have complementary areas of expertise,
will be sharing the Parish Nursing pastoral ministry to
provide the best care for all clients.

As well as volunteering with the Tri-Congregational Parish
Nursing Ministry, Maureen works full time as a home care
nurse contracted through the Community Care Access Centre.
She is also married with two teenage children. She and her
family have recently moved into our neighbourhood from
downtown Toronto.

We are blessed indeed to have her on our team.
Please welcome her in true Tri-Congregational Churches fashion.
