Rev. Shawn’s Installation

May 5 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Come and celebrate the installation of our new-ish minister Shawn Gauthier at 4 p.m. on May 5th. That Sunday will look a little different, in that the regular 11 a.m. service will be led by Rev. Claire Feingold-Thoryne, a visiting minister and close friend of Shawn’s.

Then at 4 p.m., we will have the formal Installation Service, led by Shawn, congregational leaders, and visiting clergy which will include the full participation of the congregation. (Please click HERE for the words of promise that Shawn will say to us, and we will say to him.) Also in attendance at the service will be visiting clergy from across Canada and the U.S., as well as representatives from the CUC and neighbouring Unitarian congregations.

At 5:30 p.m. we shall begin the reception in Hewett Hall, with hors d’oeuvres by a caterer. Congregants are encouraged to bring sweet or savoury finger foods to make it a truly community feast. Given the large number of people in the Hall, please try to bring something that requires little or no kitchen preparation.

We hope that you will join us on this rare ceremonial occasion. RSVP below so we can order the appropriate amount of food. Please also to let us know if you are willing and able to help with set up or clean up.

We look forward to experiencing this celebration of our shared ministry together.

Carolyn Grant and Michael O’Neil
