Nominations are now being accepted for the Presbyterian Women of Faith Awards. The award recognizes the work of women within the church, celebrating faithful service, a specific accomplishment or a lifetime of achievement. It was created by the Presbyterian Church in Canada, the Order of Diaconal Ministries and the Women’s Missionary Society and is open to all women who are a part of the PCC, including lay people, ministers and missionaries. It is hoped that the award (and the nomination process itself) will encourage the sharing of stories of women in ministry. Recipients will be recognized at a banquet at the National Presbyterian Women’s Gathering on May 21, 2017. A nomination form must be completed by a court or organization of the PCC. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 30.
