  Congratulations to Gregory Reid
 
 


Congratulations to Gregory, Rev Robert and Melissa Reid's son, on graduating with his BMQ. Gregory is currently doing a co-op term with the Canadian Armed Forces with a view to possibly joining the army in a couple of years. He has just completed his 6-week training course for Basic Military Qualifications, which is a basic requirement in all three branches of the Canadian Armed Forces: Army, Navy, & Air Force. Later he will be doing a shorter course with specific preparation for the Army.

Your Iona Church family is very proud of you, Gregory!

   
 

 

 

 

Special Congratulations to Michelle Williams

Long-time Iona member, Michelle Williams, qualified at the recent Olympic Trials
as a member of the Canadian Team for the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.
She will compete in the 50 Freestyle and 4x100 Freestyle Relay.

 
 
Michelle, your Iona Church family is SO proud of you and we recognize all the work you have put into achieving this goal. We wish you and the team all the best in Rio.
 
  Michelle, with her parents, William and Emsie, and fiance Guillermo Toro
 

 

 

  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.
