Words from the Moderator and Prayer for Orlando, Florida
Throughout The Presbyterian Church in Canada, our prayers are joined with all who react with shock and grief to the Orlando shootings. Our prayers are with the families and friends of the killed and wounded, and with those who feel particularly threatened as a result of this targeted violence.
May such tragedies rouse us to speak on behalf of peace, to renounce hatred and discrimination in all its forms, and to seek to shine the way of Christ brightly in our world. May grace, mercy and peace be with all who suffer fear, pain and loss as a result of this terrible event.
The Rev. Douglas Rollwage
Moderator, 142nd General Assembly

A family that prays together derives strength, solace, and inspiration from that act of worship. A prayer group will gather in the minister’s study at 10 a.m each Sunday. All are welcome to join in this special time of fellowship. If you have any requests for prayers, please pass them along to Rev. Stright or Valerie Macdonald.
The World Council of Churches maintains an Ecumenical Prayer Cycle website.
