The Presbyterian Church in Canada, the Order of Diaconal Ministries and the Women’s Missionary Society established an award to recognize the work of women within The Presbyterian Church in Canada.
The Presbyterian Woman of Faith Awards are given to women who are part of The Presbyterian Church in Canada who should be honoured either for faithful service, a specific accomplishment, or a lifetime of achievement.
The recipients of this award will be recognized at a banquet at the National Presbyterian Women’s Gathering on Sunday May 17, 2020.
Only individuals who are nominated are considered for the award. A nomination form must be completed by a court or organization of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Any congregation, group, college, camp or court may nominate a woman. The Woman of Faith Awards Committee considers all submitted nominations and decides the award recipients.
One of the purposes of the Woman of Faith Awards is to create an environment within The Presbyterian Church in Canada where the stories of women in ministry can be shared and celebrated. With that in mind, we encourage all nominators to share the profile that is written with the woman who has been nominated and to celebrate her and her ministry in your group and/or congregation.
For a woman who has dedicated her efforts to her local congregation and/or community.
For a woman whose envisioning and launching of a particular ministry or project has impacted her church and/or community.
Lifetime of Achievement
For a woman who has impacted the wider church through her legacy within congregations, committees, courts and ministries of the PCC, in Canada or internationally.
