Since 2015—pandemic or not!—a group from St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in downtown Toronto has been participating in the “Charity Challenge” of the annual Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon Run / Walk in Toronto. Members of the church community, ranging in age from young teenagers to over 80 years old, have joined together to enjoy a lovely morning walk in support of the congregation’s outreach ministries, including Out of the Cold, the Better English Café, the St. Andrew’s Refugee Support (StARS) program, the Music series, the Heart of the City Speaker Series, and many more. They have raised tens of thousands of dollars for these great outreach programs.
   This past winter, the congregation of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Alma, Ont., dedicated a new church sign.
  At the meeting of the Presbytery of Seaway-Glengarry on May 17, 2022, the Presbytery Moderator, Ruth Pol- lock, and Presbytery Council mem- ber the Rev. Marianne Emig Carr presented a commemorative cer- tificate, thank you card, and gift to Donna McIlveen to mark Donna’s 20 years of devoted service as Clerk of Presbytery.
During lunch, Donna and her husband David (representative el- der, Riverview, Iroquois) also cut a special cake celebrating Donna’s tenure as Clerk. Congratulations, Donna!
